Is psychiatry a science?

Posted By Russ Roberts On May 31, 2010 @ 5:09 pm In Complexity & Emergence,Podcast | Comments Disabled

The latest EconTalk is an interview with Louis Menand [1] on the state of psychiatry. One thing that emerges from our conversation is the parallels between macroeconomics and psychiatry. Understanding causation in a complex system is difficult. Both the brain and the economy are hard to model and it’s hard to know when an intervention has actually made a difference. Menand is a superb writer (the podcast draws on a recent review article he did in the New Yorker) and a very good talker as well.
