The Myth of Psychotherapy

Rudnev V.P.
Doctor of Philology, Chief researcher at the Russian Institute of Culturology, Moscow, Russia

The article treats psychotherapy as a language game. The therapist and the client are both collaborators and rivals. The author shares the hypothesis proposed by the contemporary British psychiatrist Timothy Crow that schizophrenia is an inherent illness of Homo Sapiens, so that everybody is schizophrenic to a certain degree. The language is the cause of the problem. From this point of view, psychotherapy appears an absurd business - a game between two schizophrenic persons speaking a language of schizophrenic origin.
