Extraordinary Science and Psychiatry
Leading scholars offer perspectives from the philosophy of science on the crisis in psychiatric research that exploded after the publication of DSM-5.
Psychiatry and mental health research is in crisis, with tensions between psychiatrys clinical and research aims and controversies over diagnosis, treatment, and scientific constructs for studying mental disorders. At the center of these controversies is the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), which―especially after the publication of DSM-5―many have found seriously flawed as a guide for research. This book addresses the crisis and the associated “extraordinary science” (Thomas Kuhns term for scientific research during a state of crisis) from the perspective of philosophy of science. The goal is to help reconcile the competing claims of science and phenomenology within psychiatry and to offer new insights for the philosophy of science.
The contributors discuss the epistemological origins of the current crisis, the nature of evidence in psychiatric research, and the National Institute for Mental Healths Research Domain Criteria project. They consider particular research practices in psychiatry―computational, personalized, mechanistic, and user-led―and the specific categories of schizophrenia, depressive disorder, and bipolar disorder. Finally, they examine the DSMs dubious practice of pathologizing normality.
