Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0801846374, Hardcover)

As the biological and psychosocial technologies in psychiatry continue to expand, the need for careful critical reflection on the scientific, ethical and practical aspects of psychiatry becomes ever greater. In "Philosophical Perspectives on Psychiatric Diagnostic Classification", John Osborne Wiggins, Michael Scwartz and others present a philosophical exploration of conceptual difficulties in psychiatric taxonomies or nosologies, using the current official American Psychiatric Association diagnostic handbook, the "Diagnosis and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM)" as an example.
