I am not sure where you want this to go as a discussion. There already have been several extended threads on Mate's work and ideas and he has been well and thoroughly discussed.

Some like him, some don't. I'm kinda in the middle. I think his ideas on causation are pretty much off the mark but some of his suggestions on how to deal with ADHD are reasonable and some are quite good.

What is your opinion on Mate?

I hadn’t really intended it for discussion.
I just thought someone might come across it if they were looking for resources.
