BELPER, Derbyshire, UK – Western Sadness: The Psychopathology of Modernity’ is an informative book on both sociology and psychology, whereby the Derbyshire based author, Ashley Dymond, provides readers with informed opinions on psychopathology in modern Western society to help them understand the deep-rooted origins of the ever-growing levels of sadness that plague the First-World. All in all, the text analyses the collective implications that Western societal cultures have on the psychological well-being of their citizenry by delving into the details of everyday systems such as social media, healthcare, criminal justice, education, occupations, personal relationships, and religion, amongst others.


Is the West really the best?

The blurb about the book reads, “In a world ripe with such liberating opportunity, people do seem rather upset. Why is this? Well, where European, North American, and Oceanic states successfully tend to people’s physiological needs, they equally neglect the psychological well-being of their oh-so privileged citizenries. Truthfully, contemporary Western culture actively functions to perpetuate segregation, social exclusion, and an ultimate sense of sadness. Albeit, not in the ways that you might think.”

Dedicating this masterpiece work to his readers, Ashley Dymond said, “Writing is an integral part of my life and I put my heart and soul in every book I write. When writing, I utilize a plethora of both academic and vocational knowledge in producing either scientifically-informed or entirely qualitative articles. I think the book lovers and specially those who are fond of non-fiction are really going to enjoy reading this book.”
