Summary
"Auditory hallucination is one of the most awe-inspiring, terrifying, and ill-understood tricks of which the human psyche is capable. Muses, Madmen, and Prophets reevaluates the popular conception of this phenomenon today and through the ages, revealing the roots of its medical understanding and treatment. The book probes history, literature, anthropology, psychology, and neurology to explain and demystify the experience of hearing voices, in a quest for understanding."--BOOK JACKET
