Hello Knackered,

No, not to my knowledge. I am talking about a piece he wrote (or spoke) about the books that influenced him to want to study psychiatry. I read almost all of them. He trained in the subject at a time when, especially in Great Britain, psychiatry had a very low academic standing and a very bad reputation in the public.

Maarten.

P.S. I have the piece somewhere on my harddisk, but got the link from the forum. (Apart from Goffman, it is not worth bothering. Goffman is.)
