Science and Structure Determinism
The Ethics of the Medical Model in Psychiatry, Psychology, and Psychotherapy
In this paper I examine explanations offered by scientific medicine. I wish to show that such explanations are based on structure determinism in all branches of medicine except psychiatry and the psychological medicine. I hope to show that the distinctions of illness/ disorder made in these disciplines are violations of structure determinism, and, while being legitimate as explanations, the distinctions do not belong to science but to ethics and morality. I do not intended to present a “balanced view”, but to deconstruct psychiatry and, through this, present an alternative viewpoint from the Biology of Cognition.
I tēnei tuhinga ka whakamātauhia ngā whakamāramatanga tuku mai a te rongoa pūtaiao. E hiahia ana au ki te whakaata, ko aua whakamāramatanga e whai ana i te tū whakatau a ngā peka katoa o te mātauranga rongoa hāunga ia te mātauranga mate hinengaro me te rongoa hinengaro. Ko taku wawata ka taea te whakaatu ko te whakarerekētanga o ngā mate/pōkīkī whakaritea i ēnei pekanga mātauranga he mahi takahi i te anga whakatau, ā, ahakoa e tika ana hei whakamāramatanga, ehara nō te taiao ēnei whakarerekētanga engari nō te matatika kē. Kāre au i te mea ki te tuhi i tētahi "tirohanga rite", engari ki te wāwāhi mātauranga mate hinengaro, ā, mā tēnei, ka tuku tirohanga kē atu.
