Title: The Research Domain Criteria Project And The Abandonment Of The Tradition Of Psychopathology [o Projeto Research Domain Criteria E O Abandono Da Tradição Psicopatológica]
Author: Zorzanelli R.

Abstract: This article explores the epistemological underpinnings of the Research Domain Criteria (RDoC), launched by the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) - USA. The project has the objective of empirically investigating mental disorders in a biological framework. We discuss the sharp criticism received by the DSM shortly before its fifth edition came out, based as it was on the neuroscientific approach adopted by the RDoC. The preference for pathophysiology, combined with the exclusion of first-person experience, points to a scenario where research and clinical work are irrevocably divorced, and runs the risk of fostering an odd psychiatry with neither psyche nor pathos.
