Item description for What's Behind The Symptom?: On Psychiatric Observation and Anthropological Understanding (Theory and Practice in Medical Anthropology) by Angel Martinez Hernaez, Susan M. Digiacomo, John Bates & Arthur M. Kleinman...

This book addresses the traditional perception of symptoms and whether they are physical signs of illness or symbolic and cultural forms of expression.

This book also offers critical analyses of Freud, Kraepelin, Foucault, Barthes and Peirce, among others, as part of its critical framework.
