Like attention deficit hyperactivity syndrome (ADHS) before it, autism is currently receiving increasing public attention. Warning voices have been raised, claiming that autism is becoming a fashionable diagnosis and that every recognizable personality trait is now being reinterpreted as a disease. In this context, this volume addresses questions such as: What does "normal" mean at all? What is personality? When do symptoms and characteristics become a disease? Autism is presented as a normal variant, as a personality disturbance and as a neuropsychiatric disease. It is also made clear that the situations in individuals with ADHS and tic disturbances are similar. The aim of the book, against a background conception of multicategorial normality, is to view psychological phenomena as belonging to a transitional zone between normality, deviation and disease, in order to break down anxieties and prejudices.
