Editorial Reviews

Review


"This is a fascinating and interesting look at psychiatry from the perspective of the tenets of philosophy and evolutionary theory...Though this book can be fairly complex, it is well worth the read; I highly recommend it." -- Doody's


"Both philosophy of psychiatry and philosophy of biology have been studied extensively, but there has not been much contact between the two disciplines. Maladapting Minds aims to address this gap. It consists of a foreword by Geoffrey Miller, an introduction by the editors, and 11 chapters, divided into three parts... This example only shows that not only is more research needed to establish the influence of evolutionary processes on mental health problems and normal functioning, but also more theoretical reflection on what is important in the overall relationship between psychiatry and evolutionary theory. Maladapting Minds is a nice starting point." -- Philosophical Psychology


About the Author


Pieter R. Adriaens is a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Leuven's Institute of Philosophy. He was a visiting scholar at the universities of Montpellier and Cambridge (UK), and a participant observer in various mental hospitals in Belgium. Most of his work is about the history and philosophy of evolutionary psychiatry, but he also published on evolutionary accounts of homosexuality and homophobia. He plays Fender Rhodes in a post-rock trio called Grim, and is an avid collector of mid-century modern design and decorative arts.

Andreas De Block is assistant professor at the University of Leuven's Institute of Philosophy. He studied philosophy, psychology and sexology at the universities of Gent and Leuven, and was a VENI-fellow of the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research (NWO). He is the author and editor of numerous books about philosophy, psychiatry and psychoanalysis, and has a keen interest in cultural evolution, as well as the integration of evolutionary theory and the social sciences.
