Pseudoscience in Biological Psychiatry: Blaming the Body
Colin Ross and Alvin Pam, editors
(John Wiley and Sons, 1995)
For the more serious reader willing to shell out bigger bucks, this collection of essays is a tour-de-force critique of biological psychiatry. Get it out of the library. Pam's essay "Biological Psychiatry: Science or Pseudoscience" and Ross's "Errors of Logic in Biological Psychiatry" are impressive feats of research and analysis.
The basic tenets of any theoretical system (in this case biological psychiatry) are also the ones most vulnerable to challenge. I plan to put a formal review which I wrote for the Journal of Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics on this website (under "The World According to Dr. Diller") sometime soon.
