Coercion as Cure: A Critical History of Psychiatry

Autor Thomas Szasz
en Limba Engleză Paperback – 30 iun 2009
Understanding the history of psychiatry requires an accurate view of its function and purpose. In this provocative new study of this nominal medical specialty,Szasz challenges conventional beliefs about psychiatry. He asserts that, in fact,psychiatrists are not concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of bonafide illnesses. He contends that the truth about psychiatry, its self-evident ends, and the means used to achieve them is socially unacceptable. Psychiatric tradition, social expectation, and the law make it clear that coercion is the profession's determining characteristic.
