How did we become neurochemical selves? How did we come to think about our sadness as a condition called ‘depression’ caused by a chemical imbalance in the brain and amenable to treatment by drugs that would ‘rebalance’ these chemicals? How did we come to experience our worries at home and at work as ‘generalized anxiety disorder’ also caused by a chemical imbalance which can be corrected by drugs?”
