This is a reminder for:

Title: Dominic Murphy
  On the tendency of mental illnesses to form varieties”

Many theorists have argued that mental disorders should be seen as natural  
kinds, typically along Boydian lines.  This approach fits many research  
programs currently aimed at validating DSM diagnoses. These assume that  
enduring features of the human mind/brain make it likely that   
characteristic patterns of signs and symptoms will occur across all  
subjects.  However, problems emerge with the underpinnings of this view if  
we take a longitudinal and cross cultural view. Disorders appear and  
disappear over time within Western cultures, and distinctive disorders  
endure in non-western cultures. These phenomena suggest that we need a  
wider view of the mechanisms which account for the co-occurrence of  
symptoms, and a clearer story of the emergence and extinction of kinds  
within a social setting.
