- DescriptionThe long-awaited final installment of the Biocognitive Model Series
Humanizing Psychiatists is the third of a series directed at developing the Biocognitive Model of Psychiatry as the replacement for the three nineteenth century models of mental disorder, psychoanalysis, behaviorism and biological psychiatry. In this volume, the author continues to explore the logical status of theories used in psychiatry. He shows that Dennett's functionalism and Searle's biological naturalism cant be used as the basis for a theory for biological psychiatry. He argues that phemelogy is a valuable technique but can never form a genuine theory. in addition, he shows how orthodox psychiatry uses its publishing industry to suppress criticism of itself, which is a gross breach of scientific ethics. He then shows how his Biocognitive Model of Mind can be applied to clinical practice with dramatic results.
Praise for Niall McLaren's Biocognitive Model of Mind
This book is a tour de force. It demonstrates a tremendous amount of erudition, intelligence and application in the writer. It advances an interesting and plausible mechanism for many forms of human distress. It is an important work that deserves to take its place among the classics in books about psychiatry.
--Robert Rich, PhD, AnxietyAndDepression-Help.com
Dr. McLaren brilliantly wields the sword of philosophy to refute the modern theories of psychiatry with an analysis that is sharp and deadly. His own proposed vel theory could be the dawn of a new revolution in the medicine of mental illness.
--Andrew R. Kaufman, MD Chief Resident of Emergency Psychiatry Duke University Medical Center
