a serious look…

Posted on Thursday 22 August 2013

Last night, I posted the Harvard Symposium Institutional Corruption and Pharmaceutical Policy as soon as I became aware of its existence and read the first entry [a little light reading…]. But now I’ve had the chance to read a few more of the pieces in the list. If you’re a reader of this blog or the others like it, you’ll already know a lot of the nuts and bolts of what they’re talking about, but it’s still an important read. The authors are lawyers and ethicists who are are able to frame the issues involved in a much more sophisticated [and telling] way than some old psychiatrist blogger. I’ll likely write about some of it after I digest it, but so far, every element is first class and worth a serious look…

    Am on my third article. It is invigorating to read these analyses from the perspectives of social scientists— such clarity and consideration. And the articles are open access— this is a public service from very public-minded persons. There is too often, too little of that.

    Does psychiatry care what ethicists think?

    H. Steven Moffic claims to be “da man” (sic) in psychiatry ethics, here’s an example of the quality of his thought: http://www.behavioral.net/blogs/h-steven-moffic/preventing-epidemic-psychopharmacology-lawsuits
