The Metaphysics of Psychopathology is undoubtedly a rich, stimulating, and wide-ranging book that constitutes a welcome addition to the burgeoning literature on the philosophy of psychiatry.—The Philosophical Quarterly—
The author is equally at home with clinical practice and philosophical analysis, and the book will be of interest to clinicians; philosophers of science; science, technology, and society (STS) scholars; and historians of science and medicine. Clinicians, whether seasoned or in training, will find the coverage intellectually engaging. Those with minimal background in philosophy may find it challenging. Yet, the writing is clear and the abstractions fleshed out with familiar examples to aid accessibility.
