On the bases of their critique, Mirowsky and Ross concluded their argument by recommending ‘eliminating diagnosis from research on the nature, causes and consequences of mental, emotional and behavioural problems’ (p. 11). A riposte by a Gerald Klerman in an invited comment bemoaned the loss of the period when psychiatrists and sociologists collaborated, suggesting also that Mirowsky and Ross were overly ideologically committed to a social constructivist position, were ignoring the paradigm shift within psychiatry and re-emphasised the scientific validity of a diagnostic approach to the study of mental illness (Klerman 1989).

However, the extent of this interest was notably less than that in the 1970s. Moreover, this work rarely attempted to re-build broken bridges with psychiatry. A consequence of the distancing from sociology for psychiatry was that it retreated into ‘methodologism’ and ‘quantitativism’, unchecked by critical reflection with previous close collaborators of research about the use of reified diagnostic categories. Nor in the 1980s did psychiatry deal comprehensively with the philosophical attacks on its knowledge base, let alone abandon categorical reasoning as a lost cause.
