Abstract: 

This presentation starts with a brief historical review of the schools of thought and philosophy. During this review we will have a longer stop at the twentieth century and try to look at the development of medicine in general and psychiatry in particular in this century. During this century, schools such as Freudian psychoanalysis, Behaviorism, community psychiatry and the gradual dominance of organic therapies and psychopharmacology are discussed. Then we enter the 21st century and look at health and disease at the beginning of this century, and the fact that this review is being done at a time that we are at the cross points of modernity to what is so called "Postmodern" era. The growth of genetic and epigenetic sciences, Neurosciences, communications sciences and informatics also will be briefly observed. The family in the 21st. Century in which concepts like togetherness and marriage, separation and divorce, change of extended family and the advent of nuclear family and the size of the family are also mentioned. Then we discuss the issue of psychiatric symptoms and its changes in relation to the level of development in each country or community. The speaker then points out to his own experience in Iran and his observations in the area of changing symptoms after 14 years that he has been away. And these changes are vast and thought provoking. As an example he mentions the case of borderline schizophrenia who was not very common when he left Iran and now is exactly like what he had seen during his training in a major industrial city in the united States. Then we look at the future and the fact that what would be the possible directions psychiatry may move during the present century. And his conclusion would be as follows: The era of a one faced psychiatry is over. Our discipline needs a holistic approach capable of being both comprehensive and scientifically mathematical and detailed. A psychiatry that does not talk a lot , but sees a lot. A psychiatry capable of sharing. And if we don't reach this level, the challenges ahead of us would not have a limit.
