Die Mütter
(The Mothers)

(VI From Seven Woodcuts to War), by Käthe Kollwitz, 1923-1924 (J. C. Harris, 2008)

To learn the science of mind and behavior, we begin by reflecting upon the experience of persons with mental illness. Let’s start the week by spending a couple minutes with a woodcut depicting an experience of mental illness. What is happening here? What comes to mind? Why? Follow the white rabbit.
