The purpose of this blog is to discuss mental health issues.  The title reflects my tendency to value the old wisdom that grew out of art, myth, and spirituality as well as the newer wisdom generated by modern philosophy and science.  The term “alienist” was used to designate the physicians who would eventually be known as psychiatrists.

I hope that, over time, a community of mental health providers, patients, and interested others can join together to discuss the things that make life interesting and meaningful.

Welcome to my new blog.
