Philosophy as therapy – both linguistic philosophy in the Anglo-American tradition and the critical theory of continental philosophy offer philosophy as a kind of treatment for our ills yet fall short of resolving psychiatry’s problems.

Whereas Protagoras proclaimed that, “Man is the measure of all things,” today’s science has become the all-purpose measure that Stephen Jay Gould (The mismeasure of man. New York: W.W.

The first component is projected onto a crisis of identity and the second component onto a crisis of confidence. Each discipline engaged in psychiatry adheres to its epistemic monologue, comprised...
Chapter
This chapter addresses a great challenge for psychiatry as a medical discipline, namely, its hybrid disciplinary status. On one hand, it belongs to nomothetic and, on the other, explanatory domains of science although it is not properly identified with either of them – thus constituting the so-called explanatory gap. In effect, psychiatric diagnosi...
Chapter
The prospectus of this volume on Psychiatry in Crisis starts with a survey of typical reactions to the authors’ investigations, from denial of a crisis in psychiatry to its trivialization, opening a discussion of the reductive models of psychiatry and how this creates an impoverished language of psychiatry.

This chapter reviews the history of academic psychology and psychiatry, using trauma as a focus. The history of psychology revolves around the question of consciousness, including the method of introspection, addressing the issue, “What is the subject?” The history of modern psychiatry, on the other hand, revolves around the crucial question of the...
