Inquiry 19 (1-4):360-365 (1976)
|Abstract||In ?Some Myths about ?Mental Illness'? (Inquiry, Vol. 18 , No. 3), Michael Moore attempts to clarify and refute what he takes to be the radical (existential) position concerning the nature and diagnosis of mental illness. Moore's dissatisfaction with certain formulations and conceptualizations of the radical position is endorsed; as also the need to introduce greater rigor and precision into the discussion of mental illness. But Moore's clarifications are really misunderstandings and, in consequence, his refutations do not succeed. Moore's five?fold interpretative classification of the radical thesis is retained|
