Summary

The Philosophy of a Mad Man is an autobiographical work documenting the life story and key insights of British philosopher Steven Colborne. 
  
It has often been said that there is a fine line between madness and genius. This saying is epitomised by author Steven Colborne, who in this new edition of his debut book release (revised and updated for 2019) describes the amazing life story that led him to be diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder, and which also gave him deep insights into the workings of the human mind — insights which present a challenge to contemporary scientific thinking on the subject. 
  
Complete with humour, sadness, and enlightenment, The Philosophy of a Mad Man is divided into two parts, with Part 1 detailing the author's gruelling spiritual journey, and Part 2 expounding a philosophical perspective which tackles some of philosophy's biggest problems, including the nature of God, free will, consciousness, and the meaning of life. At the very least, this book is a fascinating read, but it also has the potential to transform readers' understanding of reality entirely.
