Research as an Academic Function of Child Psychiatry

  • E. James Anthony


The longer I live and the more tolerant I grow, the more convinced I become that the universe I live in is a pluralistic one and that it takes all types and conditions to make a world, particularly a scientific world. Nevertheless, I cannot claim that I have completely outgrown every bit of my infantile egocentrism, and the models I use to conduct my daily professional business—whether of teaching, treating, or investigating—tend to be idiomatic and pervaded with personal attributes and feelings. What I have to say about research, therefore, will bear the mark of my bias. I would like this consideration to be kept in mind during the reading of these comments when any seemingly inconsistent ideas make their appearance.
