Episode 24 - Idioms of Normality hosted by Dr Paul H. Mason

Mental health, psychiatry and the history of normality

In this episode, Dr. Paul Mason speaks with Professor Roy Richard Grinker, author of Nobody’s Normal. They discuss mental health, psychiatry and the history of normality. Is normality something real and natural or is it something humans made up? And, if it is made up, how did we construct this concept and what are the consequences of deploying it? In this compelling episode, Professor Grinker discusses his study of autism, the mental health industry, and the social consequences of our classificatory labels.
