What are the subject and object of it? http://www.addforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=194245&goto=newpost Thu, 03 Jan 2019 07:30:54 GMT Over the years, I have come to the conclusion that, while we talk about "attention deficit disorder" we have very little idea of what is meant by that term.
The psychiatric profession talks about mental illness, but has no agreed definition of "mind" ("mental" being "of the mind").
So attention is "paid"- but by whom or by what?
What on earth does anybody mean by all this?
I really do not know any more. Do any of you?
This "definitional laxity" is more than enough to explain the poor results in treating the problem. ]]>
