Diane O’Leary is an independent research scholar. She received her PhD in philosophy from the University of Sydney in 1999, and she works on the ethical and philosophical parameters of psychogenic diagnosis, the conclusion that unexplained symptoms must be caused by mental, or “psychosocial” distress. Her focus is on mind/body issues as they relate to medical practice and research, concentrating currently on how physicians can care for patients with medically unexplained symptoms in a way that is both ethical and grounded in a philosophically coherent picture of mind and brain.
