Prof. Andy Scull’s paper, “Psychiatry and the Social Sciences in Post War America” in History of Political Economy

Prof. Andy Scull has written a new paper, “Psychiatry and the Social Sciences in Post War America,” to be published in History of Political Economy, 2010. This paper examines the impact of World War II and its aftermath on the mental health sector, and traces the resulting transformations in American psychiatry and the social sciences. It analyzes the growing federal role in funding training and research in the mental health sector, the dominance and decline of psychoanalysis within psychiatry in these years, and the parallel changes that occurred in both academic and clinical psychology, in sociology, and in the field of economics.
