In the latest edition of The Psychologist I’m involved in a debate with John Cromby about whether our understanding of mental illness is mired in the past.
He thinks it is, I think it isn’t, and we kick off from there.
Much of the debate is over the role of biological explanations in understanding mental distress which I think is widely understood by many.
Hopefully, amid the knockabout, the debate gets to clarify some of that.
Either way, I hope it raises a few useful reflections.
