Abstract

Values-based practice is a new skills-based approach to working with complex and conflicting values in health care that is proving to be a fast growing force at the practical cutting edge of the philosophy of psychiatry. This chapter outlines the theoretical basis of values-based practice in ordinary language (or linguistic analytic) philosophy as exemplified mainly by the work of JL Austin, Gilbert Ryle, Philippa Foot, RM Hare, Geoffrey Warnock, and others of the mid-twentieth-century “Oxford School.” 1 Ordinary language philosophy has been something of a philosophical back-water in recent decades: when Fulford’s extended essay in ordinary language philosophy, Moral Theory and Medical Practice, was published (in 1989) it was described by an Oxford philosopher, no less, as a “philosophical coelacanth.” It was aptly so named. Like the coelacanth, ordinary language philosophy has proved to be a survivor. In values-based practice, as we will show, ordinary language philosophy lives on and indeed thrives as one of the key bridges supporting the rich two-way trade between theory and practice that is the hallmark of the philosophy of psychiatry. The chapter has three main sections. The first section shows how ordinary language philosophy suggests a novel angle on the long-running debate about the concept of mental disorder. This in turn leads in the second section to a review of the findings from ordinary language philosophy first for mental disorder and then for bodily disorder. It is these findings that in the third and final main section provide the philosophical starting point for values-based practice. We start with a brief resume of what ordinary …
