Read the classical article “The Myth of Mental Illness” (1960) by Thomas Szasz, in which the author postulated that mental illness is “a name for problems in living”. Do you agree with his view? Research how the author’s ideas were met by his colleagues at the time when Szasz’s article was published? Hypothesize how the author’s ideas could be met by current main stream psychology and western society.
