Author(s): Davis, Lennard J.
Subject(s): Obsessive-compulsive disorder Biopower Psychiatric disorders Diagnosis
Abstract: This article argues that traditional models of diagnosis are incomplete in their reliance on a models of certainty that are no longer tenable in a postmodern world. Further, it argues that the current form of diagnosis, as applied to psychiatric and affective disorders, reduces patient agency and reinscribes the effects of biopower.
