Abstract

Psychiatry, like the Prozac it prescribes, aims to enhance the patient's internal psychic well-being. Yet what ails many may be not an internal state like depression or anxiety, but alienation. And the experts of the self to whom we turn cannot "cure" our collective form of life in which alienation takes root.
