Semiotic Approaches to Psychiatry: By Harley C. Shands, M.D. The Hague: Mouton & Co., 1970. 412 pp.

Review by:
Donald P. Spence

The first striking point to notice about Shands is the breadth of his knowledge. This is apparent in the references to his essay, Creativity and Success: Bartlett's Remembering; a paper from Science; an interview with Duchamps, the painter; a quotation from T. S. Eliot; Festinger's Theory of Cognitive Dissonance; Francis Galton's early paper on free association; Kuhn's Structure of Scientific Revolution; Piaget's Origin of Intelligence in Childhood; and a paper of his own on the complementarity principle in psychiatry. Psychoanalysis, art, history of science—all are discussed and the paper begins with a quotation from Emily Dickinson. In other papers, he shows an acquaintance with Whitehead, with Mary Brazier and George Miller.
