About Besse. .a schizio out for a walk, a stroll/ a saunter/broken knees...
Invalide à la suite d'une bagarre, atteint de troubles psychiatriques,
il a passé les dernières années de sa vie à la clinique de La Borde
He may have become alcoholic as well which is interesting as from what I understand the treatment afforded by alcoholics anonymous was not offered nor suggested to him; which strikes me as a real blind spot in the therapy being given at this famous clinic. In England on the contrary at the Households spring from Joseph Berke's ideas like the Ann Arbours association (and R.D. Laing ie the Philadelphia Association) crazy people who had an alcohol problem were referred to Alcoholics Anonymous
Besse's schizio walk was perhaps an addition to this schizophrenia or rather the extension of the schizo condition but on top of that it may have come from the complex, (I cant think of any other way to put it right now) of his alcoholism ____ which was not treated at La Borde.
At least not to my knowledge.
