Sample text

Is this argument sound? Let us start with the conceptual premise. For the sake of the argument, let us define being psychotic as having a distorted perception of reality which is maintained by internal psychological factors such as wishes rather than external factors such as a lack of education. Then the premise follows by definition. The argument then turns on the factual premise—is this true? I would like to argue that it may well be true. Let us take Freud’s example. Many people continue to believe in the existence of God in spite of the amount of evil God fails to prevent.

But this idea is wrong and so cannot be used to identify diseases. More importantly, we can demonstrate that a disease can be learned. It is well known that autonomic nervous responses can be learned (Miller and DiCara, 1967), and that blood pressure can be brought under voluntary control by bio-feedback techniques (Shapiro, Tursky and Schwartz, 1970). e. someone could be taught to have hypertension, a physical disease. But the fact that someone might have learned to become hypertensive does not imply that hypertension is not a disease.

Whether or not a process is a mental illness does not depend on its nature, but on the undesirability of its consequences. Similarly, Freud saw religious behaviour as a neurosis because it was generated in the same way as neurotic symptoms: I have never doubted that religious phenomena are to be understood only on the models of the neurotic symptoms of the individual. (Freud, 1985b, p. 94) But this is fallacious. Whether some process is a mental illness depends on the undesirability of its consequences, and not on its particular underlying nature.
