Rethinking Mental Health: Towards a Holistic Organismic Paradigm (Part 1 of 4)

We find ourselves in very interesting times with regard to our understanding of mental health. We find ever more heated, passionate, and polarized discussions taking place with regard to the so called mental disorders—how or even whether to try to classify them, which factors are generally helpful in recovery vs. which factors are generally harmful, what does “mental disorder” or “mental illness” even mean, and what does “recovery” even mean.

Philippe Vallat's insight:

Nice article from the New Existentialists, toward a paradigm shift

Reduktionistisches Denken kann das Ganze nicht erfassen

Wer Gedanken und Gefühle mit Neuronen erklären will, verwechselt Kausalität mit Korrelation. Naturwissenschaft erfasst Realität, aber nicht Wirklichkeit. Das Lebendige wird dadurch ausgeschlossen.

Edge: BEYOND REDUCTIONISM: REINVENTING THE SACRED By Stuart A. Kauffman

Edge: BEYOND REDUCTIONISM: REINVENTING THE SACRED By Stuart A. Kauffman | Complex systems and projects | Scoop.it

Two fine authors, Richard Dawkins and Daniel Dennett, have written recent books, The God Delusion and Breaking the Spell arguing against religion. Their views are based on contemporary science. But the largest convictions of contemporary science remain based on reductionism.

I would like to begin a discussion about the first glimmerings of a new scientific world view — beyond reductionism to emergence and radical creativity in the biosphere and human world. This emerging view finds a natural scientific place for value and ethics, and places us as co-creators of the enormous web of emerging complexity that is the evolving biosphere and human economics and culture. In this scientific world view, we can ask: Is it more astonishing that a God created all that exists in six days, or that the natural processes of the creative universe have yielded galaxies, chemistry, life, agency, meaning, value, consciousness, culture without a Creator. In my mind and heart, the overwhelming answer is that the truth as best we know it, that all arose with no Creator agent, all on its wondrous own, is so awesome and stunning that it is God enough for me and I hope much of humankind.
