Was having a thought this afternoon about madness; how do you define it? The only way I could think of is that of being without sanity or a sound mind. But then how do you define that? The free online dictionary defines sane as having sound mind, having or showing sound judgement, reasonable. So, our definition of madness is determined by what is considered sound. So is madness merely abnormality? Or worse, is sanity defined by cultural norms? Interesting thing to ponder I think. Or is it mad to question such things? You tell me.
