Should Psychiatry and Neurology Merge in to One Discipline? This is a classic form of debate over the subject matter of a discipline. It is characteristic of the normal, ongoing "war for territory" fought by all disciplines throughout history. Just as we have debated the subject matter of psychology from the begging (and we still debate it vigorously today), psychiatry and other related medical specialties have debated the nature of their subject matter. The debate is most enlightening about the kinds of issues that matter in such decisions. As always, you will notice that the debate centers keenly on the role of language in the demarcation of subject matter. - Psychiatric Times
