Essay Topics

Essay Topic 1

Solitary confinement seems like one of the most horrible ways to be punished. It's used in prisons and in mental wards, after all. Why do you think this has been used as a tool of punishment for so long? Do you think it's effective? Why or why not? Are there certain people who benefit more from this seclusion than others? Why or why not? Is there a better way to punish someone?

Essay Topic 2

Randle McMurphy comes into the ward like a madman - which is interesting enough, given the circumstances. However, he's not crazy, at least, the reader isn't lead to believe so. However, at times, it does seem like he is someone that could benefit from therapy and even medications. Do you think McMurphy should be in the ward? Why or why not? Do you feel he needs professional help? Why or why not? Do you think McMurphy believes he needs any help at all? Why or why not?

Essay Topic 3

Some patients on the ward are labels Chronics because they aren't ever going to leave the ward, but is this a reasonable idea? Do you think that some mental diseases cannot be cured? Why or why not? What kinds of symptoms/signs are incurable? Or can every person return to the outside world at one point or another?
