Download E-books Historia de la psiquiatría. De sus orígenes, sus fracasos y su resurgimiento. PDF

L. a. psiquiatría ha hecho un largo camino desde los angeles época en que los «lunáticos» eran encadenados y exhibidos como fenómenos de feria ante un público boquiabierto. Pero, como muestra Jeffrey Lieberman, en este libro extraordinario y revelador, el camino hacia l. a. legitimidad científica de l. a. «oveja negra de los angeles medicina» no ha sido fácil.

El general practitioner Lieberman hace un recorrido desde las épocas en que a los enfermos se les practicaba lobotomías o se les aplicaba descargas eléctricas como terapias curativas, hasta su reciente madurez, a partir de los angeles Segunda Guerra Mundial, como una profesión científica capaz de salvar vidas gracias, en parte, a l. a. psicofarmacología, las resonancias cerebrales, l. a. genética, l. a. neurociencia y los métodos modernos de psicoterapia.

Es una historia llena de teorías fantasiosas y, también, una historia plagada de descabellados tratamientos. Es asimismo los angeles historia de una disciplina enfrentada consigo misma, desgarrada entre los psiquiatras centrados en l. a. mente, como Sigmund Freud y los neurocientíficos centrados en el cerebro, como Eric Kandel, cuya investigación pionera contribuyó a poner fin al reinado de Freud, a quien sin embargo admiraba.

Por estas páginas brillantes pasan de Emil Kraepelin, fundador del sistema moderno de prognosis psiquiátrica, a Sigmund Freud y Oliver Sacks, entre muchas otras eminencias de los angeles psiquiatría.

«El extraordinario relato de Lieberman sobre l. a. revolución científica de l. a. psiquiatría —una revolución a l. a. que él ha contribuido activamente— resulta fascinante. Pero es sobre todo su franqueza, su ausencia de dogmatismo y su sensibilidad ante el sufrimiento lo que permanece en l. a. mente del lector mucho después de haber pasado los angeles última página.» –Sylvia Nasar, autora de Una mente prodigiosa

«Un libro excelente para introducirse en el mundo de l. a. psiquiatría moderna: sus aspectos científicos, las limitaciones y beneficios de sus sistemas diagnósticos y de sus tratamientos, cómo aciertan unas veces los médicos y por qué otras veces se equivocan. Un libro tan riguroso como ameno.» –Kay Redfield Jamison, autor de Una mente inquieta

«Un relato autorizado e inspirador sobre el progreso de los angeles psiquiatría, equilibrado por una admirable franqueza acerca de los pasos en falso de esta disciplina a lo largo de l. a. historia.» –Peter D. Kramer, autor de Escuchando al Prozac y Contra l. a. depresión

«Este libro extremadamente legible sitúa los angeles historia de los angeles psiquiatría en una perspectiva moderna que resulta totalmente accesible al lector común.» –Eric R. Kandel, healthcare professional en Medicina, premio Nobel de Neurociencia, autor de En busca de los angeles memoria y The Age of perception
