The Myth of Thomas Szasz. “Psychiatry is conventionally defined as a medical specialty concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of mental diseases,” Szasz wrote. “I submit that this definition, which is still widely accepted, places psychiatry in the company of alchemy and astrology and commits it to the category of pseudoscience.

Together, these form an interesting point/counterpoint of life on the ice shelf.
