In this research, information on oral folk tradition about the insane and insanity were collected. The proverbs and locations where folkloric information was collected is also studied. Amongst Turkish people it is believed that the insane are ingenuous, honest and that they do not have any ulterior motives; therefore, the fact that people tolerate their obsurdity, must be taken into consideration.
