comment What is the definition of sanity? How can I prove someone either sane or insane?
I think it is a very good question, even if not one that is easy to answer. As others have said, it is not a psychological definition as much as a legal one and a popular culture one. In the series "I Claudius", Nero asked one of his people if they thought he was mad. The response was "Caeser, you set the standard for sanity" ( roughly ). In many respects, this is the only clear definition - can a person function successfully in the society that they are in? Which, of course, means that it is a flexible and inprecise definition.
