Sample text

The asymmetric binary works to make us look past meanings, norms and values on the assumption that they cannot be part of the essential, or ‘natural’, form of self-harm but this is to place the cart of definition and categorisation before the horse of empirical observation and description. It has, of course, only been assumed that self-harm is a pathology or something like a pathology, and therefore something that must be at root defined in objectivist language, an assumption that increasingly seems like a poor one.

For Menninger this nonsuicidal self-mutilation stood as a particularly raw expression of a basic defence mechanism mobilised against suicidal impulses, a mechanism that channels the urge to self-destruct away from total bodily annihilation and toward a far more limited and local act of violence; a wound in place of a death, a kind of symbolic or partial suicide. This act then, as conceived by Menninger, allows for a neat symbolic victory: the capacity to kill yourself and yet survive, ‘a victory .

The problem is that we cannot simply assume this, and what attempts have been made to find examples of self-harm prior to their observations have, Favazza-like, generally turned up various examples of self-mutilation that do not adequately fit the pattern of contemporary self-harm at all. So, for example, some have suggested that the celebrated eighteenth century man of letters, Dr Samuel Johnson, stands as just such a historical case on the evidence that he apparently picked and bit at his nails, would somewhat compulsively hit and rub his legs and perhaps most suggestively, and according to his biographer Boswell, ‘scraped the joints of his fingers with a penknife, till they seemed quite red and raw’ (quoted in Parry-Jones and Parry-Jones, 1993: 395; Farber, 2002).
