Mind Fixers: Psychiatry's Troubled Search for the Biology of Mental Illness

Author(s): Anne Harrington

Popular Psychology

In Mind Fixers, "the preeminent historian of neuroscience" (Science magazine) Anne Harrington explores psychiatry's repeatedly frustrated efforts to understand mental disorder. She shows that psychiatry's waxing and waning theories have been shaped not just by developments in the clinic and lab, but also by a surprising range of social factors. Mind Fixers recounts the past and present struggle to make mental illness a biological problem in order to lay the groundwork for creating a better future.
