for a synopsis and reader comments.
|The following books examine
the relationship between psychiatric theories and practices, and Nazi Germany.
This notion is not some abstract idea, but extensive research has shown
that the primary force behind the Nazi ideas and practices of racial
superiority, sterilization, and genocide have their direct roots in the
theories and practices of psychiatry.
This is very timely in importance because
modern psychiatry is once again traveling down a similar road promoting
the validity of genetics, race, eugenics, biochemistry, biopsychiatry and
brain chemistry. The same ideas which directly led to and justified the
Nazi atrocities never disappeared but were cloaked in other nomenclatures
and exist today. In fact, many of the Nazi psychiatrists and human experimenters
were let off and absorbed into the corporate and university structures
of Europe and the United States. They never stopped believing their demented
ideas, simply changed their verbiage, and continue along very similar lines
The application of psychiatric theories of
eugenics played an interal part in all that happened in Nazi Germany. Fundamentally
it's a case of ignoring and denying the mind of Man while placing all importance
on biology, chemistry, genetics and the environment (i.e. behaviorism).
