Title: On some aspects of psychiatric diagnosis


The concepts of psychical disease and disorder are compared. The concept of disease is preferred more. Psychiatric diagnosis and its aspects are considered from the position of the biopsychosocial (trichotomy) model, the second term is preferred, the concept of the soul is concretized. The medical aspect is pathological experiences, the social one is the demetaphorization of the disease, the destigmatization of the patient, the psychological one is the impact on “the healthy among the sick”, the philosophical one is “divine madness is teleological”.
