内容紹介

Autism has attracted a great deal of attention in recent years, thanks to dramatically increasing rates of diagnosis, extensive organizational mobilization, journalistic coverage, biomedical research, and clinical innovation. Understanding Autism, a social history of the expanding diagnostic category of this contested illness, takes a close look at the role of emotion--specifically, of parental love--in the intense and passionate work of biomedical communities investigating autism.

Chloe Silverman tracks developments in autism theory and practice over the past half-century and shows how an understanding of autism has been constituted and stabilized through vital efforts of schools, gene banks, professional associations, government committees, parent networks, and treatment conferences. She examines the love and labor of parents, who play a role in developing--in conjunction with medical experts--new forms of treatment and therapy for their children. While biomedical knowledge is dispersed through an emotionally neutral, technical language that separates experts from laypeople, parental advocacy and activism call these distinctions into question. Silverman reveals how parental care has been a constant driver in the volatile field of autism research and treatment, and has served as an inspiration for scientific change.

Recognizing the importance of parental knowledge and observations in treating autism, this book reveals that effective responses to the disorder demonstrate the mutual interdependence of love and science.

レビュー

For Chloe Silverman, 'understanding autism' means understanding how autism has become a diagnostic category and why for some people, in autism advocacy groups for example, it isn't a pathology at all but just a different way of seeing the world. . . . Silverman's remarkable book is a testimony to the difference parents of autistic children have made to the understanding of autism, and it also has things to say about the difference a parent's understanding can make to understanding many other things that children suffer from.--Adam Phillips "London Review of Books "

Silverman's book presents a vivid picture of the ongoing and somewhat dialectical (in the Hegelian sense) relationship between parents of autistic children and professionals who specialize in autism.--W. R. Albury "Bulletin of the History of Medicine "

"Understanding Autism" provides a much-needed and thorough history of autism. In addition, it makes a convincing case for incorporating affective relationships into science and technology studies and our understandings of the foundational elements of expertise. At moments in the book, however, the tension between affect and science are incompletely resolved. These moments of tension will likely prove elucidating in future research.--Marissa King "American Journal of Sociology "

"Autism remains a contested condition, and given the steep rise in research, diagnosis rates and media coverage, the debate is set to run and run. Science historian Chloe Silverman gives a balanced, sensitive social history of autism that unflinchingly covers many controversial byways. She explores the theory and biomedical advances, and how gene banks, schools and autism organizations have enriched understanding--augmented by parents of children with autism, whose experiences have informed and inspired much research."--Nature

"Comprehensive, well annotated, and fascinating to read, Understanding Autism will appeal to readers from a broad variety of disciplines. Silverman provides an honest and refreshing perspective on encouraging dialogue about a condition that will likely continue to be in the public spotlight for decades to come."--Science

"Silverman provides a very good account of autism; knowledgeable readers will find themselves nodding along with the details. The author excellently portrays the relationship of autism with its social history."--Choice

"Silverman's book presents a vivid picture of the ongoing and somewhat dialectical (in the Hegelian sense) relationship between parents of autistic children and professionals who specialize in autism."--W. R. Albury, Bulletin of the History of Medicine

I am a biomedical researcher interested in autism. As a bench scientist, sometimes I think I operate too much in a vacuum. What I mean is that we do research without understanding how ideas evolved over time. As somebody who is totally ignorant of history of autism, the book did a fine job of introducing major characters and ideas about autism. Another reason I have read the book is that it was featured in science magazine [...]

The book starts by giving a brief history of how autism came to be diagnosed mentioning Leo Kanner and Hans Asperger's classical papers. From here moves into pyschogenic theory and Bruno Battelheim's Orthogenic school in Chicago. Continues with scientists discrediting Battelherim's ideas and the field moving into more parental involvement especially with Dr. Ivaar Lovaas's applied behavior analysis or ABA. Next chapter deals with failed promise of autism genetics. Then in final two chapters we see parents as main actors in either trying alternative biomedical treatments or in advocating potential involvement of vaccines in causing autism.

I think the weakest point of the book for me was the book's claim about using love as an analytical tool. To be honest, I still do not understand what the author means by that. Does it mean examining how love affects the biomedical researchers, parents and doctors operate? Maybe. Very nice thing about the book however is that it carefully avoids taking sides in many contraversial issues such as vaccine debate and advocates of autism with autism diagnoises themselves. Although I assure you that the book does not take sides, I finished book thinking that there could possiblity be a link between vaccines and certain autism types. This would be something I will research more in the future.

Finally I felt like the book was disorganized sometimes with regard to timelines and topics discussed. I could hardly get through the introduction chapter which was very difficult to read because of writing style. The book was also very weak when it comes to providing in debt information about autism symptoms and autistic behavior in general. Still it provided lots of useful information for me and could be my reference book for the future. However, I wouldn't recommend this book to somebody with a lot of background in autism.
