(p.244) Chapter 16 RACE AND CULTURE
The Philosophy of Psychiatry
Jennifer Radden
Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses three attempts to theorize the philosophical and cultural issues relevant to raciation in psychiatry: the work of Michel Foucault, Frantz Fanon, and E. V. Wolfenstein. It also discusses the development of a view that can build on the strengths of previous work and enable forward movement. It argues that the problems of the relations among inner and outer oppression and victim status cannot be understood unless the relation between individual and collectivity is encompassed within a perspective that is beyond psychoanalytic Marxism, for the latter construes individual and social praxis as two separate planes of liberatory praxis.

Keywords:   raciation, psychiatry, Michel Foucault, Frantz Fanon, Marxism, E. V. Wolfenstein
