Valerie Gray Hardcastle (au). Hardcastle offers a biologically based complex theory of pain processing, inhibition, & sensation & uses this theory to argue that: (1) psychogenic pains do not exist; (2) a general lack of knowledge about fundamental brain function prevents us from distinguishing between mental & physical causes, although the distinction remains useful; (3) most pain talk should be eliminated from both the folk & academic communities; & (4) such a biological approach is useful generally for explaining disorders in pain processing. Her analysis of pain can serve as a model for the analysis of other psychological disorders & suggests that her project be taken as a model for the philosophical analysis of disorders in psychology, psychiatry, & neuroscience.
