R.D.Laing, phychiatrist

Today and yesterday's ' citing' in economic times have been browsed. Came across this ' R.D.Laing'. who's R.D.Laing ? Here it is :

Ronald David Laing (October 7, 1927August 23, 1989), was a psychiatrist who wrote extensively on mental illness and particularly the experience of psychosis. He is noted for his views, influenced by existential philosophy, on the causes and treatment of mental illness, which went against the psychiatric orthodoxy of the time. He is often associated with the anti-psychiatry movement although, like many of his contemporaries also critical of psychiatry, he himself rejected this label.
