Jeffrey A. Gray âOurs is the Age of Anxiety â: that seemed a suitably portentous sentence with which to open this Myers Lecture. But then I realized that I was out of date. The first quarter of the 20th century might have deserved this epithet; but one has to be badly out of touch with reality to doubt that we are now well into the Age of Psychosis. Alas, it is too late to change the course of my research and join the modern world. So I shall stick to my last, even as you mutter: âAh, Oxford, home of lost causes, privileged haven of anxiety in a psychotic world!â And there is worse to come. Here you will find no trend-setting curtsy towards humanistic - or even cognitive - psychology, no dirge over the body of behaviourism; but rather the old-fashioned belief that psychologists study behaviour, and that this is a product of the brain. âThat is all very wellâ, I can hear you object, âbut isnât that the same blank cheque that Sechenov offered us over a century ago? And shouldnât it have been cashed by now? And isnât it audacious to attempt to cash it
