Summary
In Mind Fixers, Anne Harrington, author of The Cure Within, explores psychiatry's repeatedly frustrated struggle to understand mental disorder in biomedical terms. She shows how the stalling of early twentieth-century efforts in this direction allowed Freudians and social scientists to insist, with some justification, that they had better ways of analyzing and fixing minds
Summary
Documents the unfulfilled 1980s quest to identify the biological basis of mental illness, documenting the cultural upheavals, activism, public policy change, rivalries and profit-mongering that shaped efforts to address mental illness with biochemical treatments
