psychiatry and history pdf free download. Psychiatry per se has been defined as the medical study, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of mental illness. Since most of the individuals and groups studied by historians cannot be classified as “mentally ill,” and are certainly not amenable to treatment, psychiatry would appear to have little applicability to history, even as a diagnostic aid. Only when psychiatry itself is broadened beyond mental illness into a kind of general psychology can it, even in principle, become available for significant use by historians and social scientists.
