  1. Psychiatric Taxonomy: At the Crossroads of Science and Ethics.Şerife Tekin - 2014 - Journal of Medical Ethics 40 (8):513-514.
    The scientific investigation of mental disorders is an invigorating area of inquiry for philosophers of mind and science who are interested in exploring the nature of typical and atypical cognition as well as the overarching scientific project of ‘carving nature at its joints’. It is also important for philosophers of medicine and bioethicists who are concerned with concepts of disease and with the development of effective and ethical treatments of mental disorders and the just distribution of mental health services.

  • Vulnerability as Practice in Diagnosing Multiple Conditions.Lindsay-Ann Coyle & Sarah Atkinson - 2019 - Medical Humanities 45 (3):278-287.
    The paper contributes to contemporary understandings of vulnerability by expanding their scope with an understanding of vulnerability as generated through institutionalised practices. The argument draws on experiential accounts of navigating the practices of diagnosis by people living with multiple conditions of ill-health and disability.

  • Debating DSM-5: Diagnosis and the Sociology of Critique.Martyn D. Pickersgill - 2014 - Journal of Medical Ethics 40 (8):521-525.
    The development of the fifth edition of the American Psychiatric Association's Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders—the DSM-5—has reenergised and driven further forward critical discourse about the place and role of diagnosis in mental health. The DSM-5 has attracted considerable criticism, not least about its role in processes of medicalisation. This paper suggests the need for a sociology of psychiatric critique. Sociological analysis can help map fields of contention, and cast fresh light on the assumptions and nuances of debate (...)
