Online media for this show is not available on our website.

Episode Details

Mental health is a significant national issue yet psychiatry still remains suspect as a science. In fact, psychiatry is said to have a "split personality," with the traditional psychiatrists and psychologists on one side and the high-tech medical scientists also called the biomedical psychiatrists on the other side. Do these new techniques tip the scale and put psychiatry into the realm of science and take it out of the realm of philosophy?
Guests: Nancy C. Andreasen M.D, Ph.D.; Robert Epstein, Ph.D.; Peter Loewenberg, Ph.D. Host: Robert L. Kuhn.
