VILLAGRAN MORENO, José M.. Criticism of psychopatology only makes sense within a critical psychopatology. Rev. Asoc. Esp. Neuropsiq. [online]. 2002, n.82, pp.75-85. ISSN 2340-2733.

In this reply to a former article it is argued for a critical psychopathology which accounts for the sociocultural factors that intervene in the development, consolidation and understanding of mental symptom, and against a criticism of psychopathology as a scientific project that assumes a strong nominalist view, adopts an evaluative reductionist concept of mental disorder, ignores the present debate on the concept of disorder and resembles the so-called postpsychiatry.

Keywords : psychopathology; mental disorder; postpsychiatry.
