Default Doyle's Sunday I

I can't get the idea of detection out of my head. I've started a book recently. Arthur And Sherlock.

It's been very revealing, and I've more to say. I'm thinking someone else might get the book.

In an effort to get others to understand the book, I have included some thoughts.

Doyle was a physician, and a failed one at that. This made him no less likely to write about (in fact, invent) the first detective for many (I hesitate the use the word "masses") that used his observational skills and vast knowledge of minutia to great effect when it came to solving crimes.

Doyle's influence came from an instructor at his medical college named Joe Bell. Bell said, "...never neglect to ratify your deductions...with the stethoscope - and by other recognized and everyday methods..."

Bell didn't live to see a time when his observations weren't questioned in any way...but my contention is that we are living in that time now.

"Everyday methods" are superseded by tradition and lack of questioning. While a therapist's education is greater than it may have been, this has been overcome in favor of something else.

Can anyone guess what?

Fear of abductive reasoning?

TonyG,

"Abductive reasoning" is certainly possible. An argument can be made. Might you make one?

My feeling is that writers are a special breed of artists and that they are more informed in some ways than others. I wonder where that comes from?

Anyway, Holmes spoke specifically of how often he'd been wrong, but pointed out that Watson wrote of them. He actually made Sherlock sound "better" than he was.

Of course, Doyle orchestrated all of this.

Barrett I haven’t read the book (I should) and I’m probably misinterpreting your posts.

Are therapists feeling pressured to provide a quick diagnosis to satisfy society’s obsession with instant gratification; despite either knowing better, or maybe not knowing at all?

Last year, I spoke to a friend whose wife was admitted to hospital with what was suspected to be some type of inflammatory condition in the epidural space. She was experiencing strong pain and limited movement.
A few months passed until we spoke again recently.

Me: How’s your wife?
Him: Good and bad, she’s feeling much better, although the doctors don’t know what was causing the pain.
Me: So she’s feeling much better and can move again?
Him: Yes 100%, but, she needs to know why, some sort of diagnosis, it’s really getting her down.
Me: Hmmm, interesting.

The conversation reminded me of a psychologist who asked a man how he ate his cake as a child.... icing first, or icing last.

I'm digressing.

Back on topic.
I'd like this thread to continue as I feel it will uncover some really good stuff, and I'm here to learn.
