    In recent years, the advent of MRI technology seems to have unlocked the secrets of the human mind, revealing the sources of our deepest desires, intentions, and fears. As renowned psychiatrist and scholar Sally Satel and psychologist Scott O. Lilienfeld demonstrate in Brainwashed, however, the explanatory power of brain scans in particular and neuroscience more generally has been vastly overestimated.

    Americans have traditionally placed great value on self-reliance and fortitude. Recent decades, however, have seen the rise of a therapeutic ethic that views Americans as emotionally underdeveloped, requiring the ministrations of mental-health professionals to cope with life's vicissitudes.

    From now until tomorrow at this time, twelve people will die because they cannot survive the wait for a kidney transplant. Shocking? Sadly, this is old news. Since 1987, the year the federal government started keeping tabs on the numbers of patients in need of a kidney, liver, heart, or lung, there have never been enough organs.
