Perspectives on Normality

Perspectives on Normality Abstract WHEN the Institute for Psychosomatic and Psychiatric Research and Training of Michael Reese Hospital and Medical Center, Chicago, was dedicated in 1951, a wide variety of topics was discussed.

Abstract

Abstract WHEN the Institute for Psychosomatic and Psychiatric Research and Training of Michael Reese Hospital and Medical Center, Chicago, was dedicated in 1951, a wide variety of topics was discussed. This composite of contributions from many disciplines emphasized the absence rather than the presence of a long-awaited synthesis of many efforts into what has been called behavioral science. Indeed, only a few years later the first issue of the Archives of General Psychiatry appeared, with the editors' hopes that publication of investigations from many contributory sciences might develop a science of psychiatry or a unified theory of human behavior.1 In 1966 the 15th anniversary of the Institute was celebrated at a scientific meeting in Chicago devoted to the subject of "New Directions in Research on Normal Behavior." The ten speakers were distinguished scientists from various fields—some who had spoken at the original References 1. Grinker, R.R., Sr. (ed.): Toward a Unified Theory of Human Behavior , ed 2, New York: Basic Books, Inc., 1967. 2.
