Well, yes, among a lot of other things he actually says that. To my eyes, it is the narrative of the ‘lost art of psychiatry’ he leaps into. How the psychiatrist once was a more rounded authority, well read in the humanities, at least as interested in psychotherapy as in medication and so forth. But alas, now this refined professional has been degraded to pushing pills. However, the past had its problems too, of which the present knows very little, so perhaps it is a nice dream, nothing more. I’m pretty sure the future does not lie in the past in such a concrete sense.
