Papers presented in parallel sessions analyze Szasz's works and their implications, tracing his influence on paradigm shifts in psychiatry and psychology, establishing a context in history and literature from which to examine his perspective on culturally determined institutions for oppression, locating him in the humanistic tradition, and exploring his role in the development of changing attitudes toward social and legal controls vs. civil rights.
