Book Review Grant Gillett The Mind and Its Discontents [Book Review]

Philosophy of psychiatry is on the rise. The last decade has seen an explosion in philosophical interest in psychiatric disorder, supported by flourishing research in adjacent disciplines, particularly clinical and cognitive psychology, neuroscience, and, of course, psychiatry itself. The publication of the first edition of The Mind and its Discon- tents in 1999 helped spark this explosion. The publication of this second edition is a welcome addition to OUP’s blossoming International Perspectives in Philosophy and Psychiatry Series.
