    I wonder how the other members of the advisory council managed to keep it from him until the big day. It must have been such a lovely surprise.

    Like Christmas no doubt, when you already know what's inside the wrapping, but have to feign surprise. I suppose it helps if you have lots of practice at feigning.

    I can't reply with a 'quote' as it would mean duplicating that image. But please TiredSam... I've not long had breakfast.... :sick:

    Just got home from work - still in teacher mode. I'll be back to normal when I've had a lie down.

    initially when I saw that picture I wanted to find a tom and Jerry cartoon frying pan and edit, but then I realised he has just fallen over a Christmas tree and seems to have got tangled up in the tinsel etc, which made me feel a bit better.

    Interesting: Mr. Wessely wrote an article "Commentary: the psychiatry of hubris",
    https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1633554/

    It's from 2006. It's rather a political statement. And it feels like he's saying, "Look, I am just grand, the others are dumb". It sounds a little belittling...but that's obviously ok if this is amongst "highborn". If "lowborn" (i.e. us) critisize, e.g. their "scientific" work, this is harassment.

    Preaching by parable and anecdote.

    There was a typo in the title by the way - it should have been "Commentary: the hubris of psychiatry"

    i.e. "It involves all that science stuff, so it must be simpler".
    A Greek hero ... hmm ... yep, I'm sure he could see himself fitting most of that description. Except the last bit of course. But that's Greek heroes for you!

    That's wierd because I'm sure I read an interview of his where he implied that he could have done many great things with his fine mind but he very kindly decided to dedicate himself to psychiatry for the good of humanity, even though it was way beneath him.

    I suppose it depends who he's talking to. It certainly shows what he thinks of himself. He'd give anyone else with an attitude like that a diagnosis.

    Physical health might look simpler because sometimes people who know what they are doing can make something look simple even if it is not, and of course they talk more sense in physical health so "easier" to understand in a way.
