"In Everyday Suffering, sociologist Joseph E. Davis explores the motivations of the millions of Americans who take mood-altering drugs not for a serious mental illness, but to help deal with the problems and suffering of everyday life. Whereas in the past, a person going through a time of difficulty might keep a journal or see a therapist, the psychological has been replaced by the biological: instead of treating the heart, soul, and mind, we now take a prescription to treat the brain. Davis explores how this change has affected our sense of ourselves as people in the world. What do ordinary people find compelling in neurobiological interpretations and interventions? And what do these interpretations and interventions help them to be? In the end, Davis argues for more reflection on our social emotions in a way that neurobiological diagnoses drive out, for the frameworks that valorize everyday suffering as an opportunity to enrich the soul, to learn important truths about ourselves and the human condition. We miss out when we let a pill take those opportunities away"--

Elisabeth Wurtzel ne veut ni mourir ni vivre, mais le problème c'est qu'il n'y a rien entre les deux. Sauf le pire, c'est-à-dire la dépression clinique. Brillante et pleine de promesses à l'âge de dix ans, elle s'inflige l'année suivante sa première overdose médicamenteuse en camp de vacances et, dés douze ans, se taillade régulièrement les mollets à coups de lame de rasoir. Etudiante, puis journalistique, elle accumule crises et tentatives de suicide, thérapie et hospitalisations, avant de venir l'un des premières patientes à suivre une cure de Prozac. Associé à d'autres traitements, ce médicament lui a permis de rester vivante et d'écrire ce livre, à l'âge de 26 ans. Loin de se réduire à une exaltation de la pharmacopée en vogue, Prozac Nation va au-delà du simple témoignages individuel. Par la voix d'Elisabeth Wurtzel s'élève celle d'une génération entière d'enfants du désespoir, englués dans la culture de l'éclatement familial, de l'instabilité économique et du sida. Tour à tour déchirant et drôle, ce livre a été acclamé à sa sortie aux Etats-Unis en 1994, comme l'" attrape-cœur dans années 90 ".
