Science Fictions
How Fraud, Bias, Negligence, and Hype Undermine the Search for Truth
Stuart Ritchie - 2020-07-21
Calificación de Goodreads
A manifesto for a more rigorous approach to scientific data, Science Fictions shines a light on the bias, incompetence, and fraud that plague the peer-reviewed world. With a Freakonomics-style examination, Stuart Richie's book uncovers the replication crisis in science, where famous experiments are proving unrepeatable and the conclusions of countless studies are downright wrong. Readers will be empowered with a toolkit for spotting bad science to save the field from itself.
Vaughan Bell
Just finished this excellent book by @StuartJRitchie. Assumed it would be fast-paced science journalism on scientific errors but it's also quite a profound book on the history and philosophy of science 👏👏👏      fuente

Psycho Politics book cover
Psycho Politics
Peter Sedgwick - 1982-01-01 (publicado por primera vez en 1981)
Calificación de Goodreads
This classic mental health book provides a credible critique of the anti-psychiatry movement, analyzing the ideas of influential figures such as Goffman, Laing, Szasz, and Foucault. The author proposes a politics of mental health that emphasizes collective responsibility for mental health care and challenges the overemphasis on individual civil liberty. With wide-ranging implications for political activism and social movements, this book is as relevant today as ever. The new edition includes a foreword placing the book in its contemporary context and the author's 1983 address to the Royal College of Psychiatrists.
Vaughan Bell
@AnneCooke14 @awaisaftab @cadoganhealthc1 @MkRBol @markhoro @Huwtube In terms of specific defences of the value of understanding mental health problems as illness, Peter Sedgwick's Psycho Politics is excellent and remains very relevant, although the ear bending about Marxism is a little tedious in places.      fuente

The Disordered Mind
What Unusual Brains Tell Us About Ourselves
Eric R. Kandel - 2018-08-28
Calificación de Goodreads
Discover how disruptions in the brain's communication can lead to complex disorders like depression, schizophrenia, addiction, and PTSD in this pioneering work by Nobel Prize winner Eric R. Kandel.

His studies of autism, depression, addiction, and Parkinson's reveal surprising insights on our most fundamental capabilities and what it means to be human. Journey with Kandel as he delves into the neurological foundations of our social instincts and memories and uncovers the secrets of consciousness itself.
Vaughan Bell
@AnneCooke14 @awaisaftab @cadoganhealthc1 @MkRBol @markhoro @Huwtube The best exposition of this (not a defence really) I've come across is Eric Kandel's The Disordered Mind. Despite accepting social and psychodynamic factors, it implies the pre 2010 NIMH genes and neurotransmitter approach is likely to give the most valuable explanations.      fuente
