Summary
"How should we deal with mental disorder - as an illness like diabetes or bronchitis, as a problem in living, or something else? This book seeks to answer such questions by going to their philosophical roots, examining the nature of the human mind, the ways in which it can be understood, and the nature and aims of scientific medicine."--BOOK JACKET
