Unveiling the Grail on Human Nature and Mental Disorder
The researching and writing of this manuscript has truly been a ‘fantastic voy- age’ made possible and enriched by the contributions of many. My grateful thanks to the University of Waikato for the doctoral scholarship that enabled this work, and to my chief and assistant supervisors, Drs. Tracy Bowell and Carolyn Michelle, and all those in the Philosophy and Societies & Cultures Departments for their knowledge, guidance, friendship, and the freedom to ex- plore. Many thanks also to Luce Irigaray for the guidance of her writings, and for the opportunity to attend and learn from her seminar at the University of Nottingham in 2010, and to counsellor Wol Hansen for his advice during the empirical research. With love and heartfelt thanks, I dedicate this work to my family, and espe- cially to the memory of my mother Doreen, to my partner Jan and her family, and to all the wonderful women who participated in, and inspired the theory and ideas behind, this (re)search. It is you who gave passion, wind, and wings to the journey. I also dedicate this endeavour to Kayla Wright, in the hope that, one day, things will be different.
