    "
    The Summer School will take place in advance of the EAPM (European Association of Psychosomatic Medicine) conference at a very stimulating venue: the Allersmaborg (a manor near Groningen). A PhD student committee will take care of a smashing social programme."

    stimulating and smashing. I can think of better things Phd students could be doing.

    It's usually difficult to implement ideas that are wholly fictitious and based on gut feeling. Phrenology had the same problem, as did pretty much all psychosomatic medicine for the past century or so.

    When after decades of work you only have weak, subjective evidence and everyone has their own personal definition that's usually the sign that you're lost in the weeds and need to backtrack. This has always been the lesson in the past. Why is that lesson never learned, the mistake repeated as is in complete isolation from its past failures?

    Stop propping up the god of the gaps. He's long dead and no amount of doing a Weekend at Bernie's on it will make up for that.
