Hacking's reconciliation: Putting the biological and sociological together in the explanation of mental illness

Philosophy of the Social Sciences 31 (2):139-162 (2001)
Abstract
In a series of recent works, Ian Hacking has produced a model of social causation in mental illness and begun to sketch in outline how this might be integrated with the medical model of psychiatry. This article elaborates and revises Hacking 's model of social forces, criticizes him for attempting a merely semantic resolution of the tension between the social and the biological, and sketches an alternative approach that builds upon his substantial insights
