Abstract

As part of the excitement and challenge of our times, psychiatry shares with the rest of human activity a soul-searching, candid questioning of principles and practices and a responsibility for developing new perspectives and patterns of action. During these times when there seems to be a strong swing toward conformity and stereotypy in our society, there is also an intense counteraction—especially in those under 30—of questioning all tradition, respecting no sacred cows. These phenomena lead to heated debates, voices raised in anger, and hot letters to editors; but, through all of the dust raised, I believe we can see encouraging prospects and clearing of the atmosphere—possibly because there has been open disagreement.
