Crazy Like Us 

When: Thu., May 19, 7:30 p.m. 2011
Ethan Watters' new tome Crazy Like Us tackles an alarming aspect of the Western approach, demonstrating that a particularly American brand of defining, explaining, diagnosing, and treating mental states is being exported to other societies without taking into account fundamentally different cultural—and therefore mental—environments. Armed with ample studies, Watters makes a tidy case for the idea that disorders' causes, expressions, and favorable resolutions are not universal. As an entry point to this fascinating evolution, Watters' argument is a compelling shot across the bow.
