The Contextual Nature of Psychiatric Diagnosis
Rosenhan, David L.
Journal of Abnormal Psychology, 84, 5, 462-74, Oct 75
Psychiatric diagnoses are powerfully influenced by the contexts in which patients are found and the expectations of diagnosticians. The observations of Millon, Spitzer, and Weiner on Rosenhan's "On Being Sane in Insane Places" (AA 521 951) were examined for the implications they held for the meanings of sanity and insanity.
