This chapter outlines the origins of reductionism and its connection to the unity of science and to philosophical naturalism. It explores its motivation for philosophers of mind and of mental disorder, and sketches out the backlash against it that emerges from a reappropriation of a prescientific revolution worldview.

Keywords:   philosophical naturalism, mental disorder, mental content, psychiatry
