In her paper, “Evidence-based medicine in context: A pragmatist approach to psychiatric practice,” Jorid Moen sets out to advance the debate about role of evidence-based medicine in psychiatric practice. She views this debate as dichotomous and unproductive. It is dichotomous in the sense that EBM is linked to foundationalist theories of knowledge, whereas critiques of EBM are often based in anti-foundationalist theory. It is unproductive because neither position offers a way forward. Moen draws on the philosophical tradition of pragmatism in hopes that ‘opposing positions of EBM might be brought to agree that the different perspectives they represent are both relevant and important for psychiatric.
