Mindless Neuroscience

Neuroscientists don’t believe that such a thing as the mind exists. They flat-out reject the concept of mind. I find that a very scary, slippery slope. I think psychiatry has lost its mind, both literally and metaphorically. ...

Mainstream psychiatry is really just: symptom, check, this is the right medication for you. We don’t do therapy anymore as psychiatrists. If you need that, go to a psychologist. It’s kind of ludicrous. You’re taking care of people’s minds, but you don’t want to know anything about the mind. ...
I believe we are living in a time of huge existential crisis in our society.
- Neurologist Jay Lombard, quoted in JOHN WILLIAMS, Tell Us 5 Things About Your Book: ‘The Mind of God’, NYT, JUNE 25, 2017
