About this book


The author applies modified versions of pre-modern philosophy (including Aristotle and Aquinas) to psychiatry, arguing that the work of the Aristotelian philosopher, Christian and former Marxist, Alasdair MacIntyre is ideally placed to bring about a transformation of psychiatry from its current captivity to the modern scientific technical paradigm.
