Abstract The anti-psychiatry movement of the 1960s held that identifying people as mentally ill was a convenient way to control segments of the population considered to be socially undesirable. Two centuries earlier, Enlightenment philosophers reasoned that if insanity could be traced to physiological defects, it might then be assumed that human beings are no more than somatically-driven automatons without free will. This program examines these and other notions about labeling mental illness, and also looks at research that suggests a neurological basis for schizophrenia.
