Psychology, ADHD, genes, dogmatism.


Psychologists have made a brain-related discovery that could revolutionize doctors’ perception and treatment of attention-deficit disorders (ADHD). This discovery opens up the possibility that environmental and/or genetic factors may hinder or suppress a specific brain activity that the researchers have identified as helping us prevent distraction.

Free will sacrificed for the sake of gene-based determinism.

We are becoming slaves to our fate.

But maybe it is not our fault.
Maybe it is in our genes to be stupid.

Psychology without the “Psycho”.
Psychology without the “Logos”.

How convenient.
The path of stupidity is always the easiest one…
And, by the way, has a lots of money.

I call it Intelligence Deficit Disorder.
And I hereby order all psychiatrists into specific treatment for it.

Repeat after me:
“Humans are not their genes”
“Humans are not their genes”
“Humans are not their genes”

Spiros Kakos is a thinker located in Greece. He has been Chief Editor of Harmonia Philosophica since its inception. In the past he has worked as a senior technical advisor for many years. In his free time he develops software solutions and contributes to the open source community. He has also worked as a phD researcher in the Advanced Materials sector related to the PCB industry. He likes reading and writting, not only philosophy but also in general. He believes that science and religion are two sides of the same coin and is profoundly interested in Religion and Science philosophy. His philosophical work is mainly concentrated on an effort to free thinking of "logic" and reconcile all philosophical opinions under the umbrella of the "One" that Parmenides - one of the first thinkers - visualized. The "Harmonia Philosophica" articles program is the tool that will accomplish that. Life's purpose is to be defeated by greater things. And the most important things in life are illogical. We must fight the dogmatic belief in "logic" if we are to stay humans... Credo quia absurdum!

  1. Interesting. So what is your stance on psychology? Should it involve something beyond brain chemistry and the genes then? Or: What’s your opinion on the mind/body problem?

    1. Many questions there! 🙂

      Regarding psychology, yes I believe it should steer itself towards a new viewpoint, where our Self is more evident as the immaterial existence it seems to be rather than a simple expression of “complicated matter”.

      And regarding the mind/ body problem I stand with the solution Chomsky proposed. “Mind/ body problem? But there is no body!” 🙂 Everything is the result of our thought, matter included…

      What do you believe?

      1. I’m not sure. I think we don’t really understand consciousness, but I think the number one fact we have to take into account is that there *is* consciousness which is hard to explain by reductive materialism or eliminative materialism. Personally I think that the authors of ‘irreducible mind’ (emily kelly raise some rather important points during this book even if one might not agree with everything in it.
