Walking Nightmares for Medical Student - In Defence of Sherlock and Mycroft's Normalcy

Warning: Semi-professional rambling ahead

Having read many comments, posts and extended essay on the subject of the Holmes Brothers and their myriad of psychiatric problems – I feel that I too should throw something into the psychoanalysis pot. In my case it’s going to be a much loved copy of the Oxford Handbook of Psychiatry. I explore Sherlock's "autism" and his incredibly arrogant declaration of being a "high functioning sociopath".




Why Sherlock doesn't have autism and never didCollapse )

Other Parts in the Series

2. Mycroft on the Examination Couch

3. Sherlock, Himself and His Aspergers.



Feedback is always welcome! I love to discuss things with commenters.
