The type of thesis you need depends on the type of paper you're writing and what exactly your topic is. Madness is a very general topic, what about madness are you focusing on?

Here's a link that's helped me with my thesis statements:

Yes, it's for english class. I guess I'm focusing on madness in a war (between two countries), but I think I might also focus that madness is a war in the mind (an internal war). I hope that makes sense..

Could this be a good thesis?
"Madness occurs from the fragile mind being destroyed by internal wars within ourselves".

Hm, interesting topic. Are you looking at this through how two countries may interact with each other in times of crisis OR are you looking at the psychological aspect of leaders and their decision-making? I'm not sure if I fully understand your topic.

A thesis should be a statement that basically sums up your paper, without revealing too much.


Check out my blog: White-Out Blots

How did Mandela get the will to surpass the everyday,
When injustice had him caged and trapped in every way,
How did Ghandi ever withstand the hunger strikes and all,
Didn't do it to gain power or money if I recall,
It's to give; I guess I'll pass it on

Yeah that sounds like a good thesis, just remember you need to back up the thesis.. and it usually requires lots of research...and good luck...

Hmm how about the Thesis of facts and fiction when it comes to madness.

FACT: Madness isn't a disease, it's a state of mind.
FICTION: Madness doesn't mean you should go to the loony bin.


So where did everyone go?
And you don't even know
So don't pretend that you do

It's just a set up
For all the failures
Always playing after something cool

Ever read The Red Badge Of Courage? It focuses a lot on the madness of war, both explicitly and within the mind. It might be a good starting point for ideas.
