The evolutionary psychology of healing: a human success story

Highly recommended piece of writing from Nicholas Humphrey
and John Skoyles

"The paradox is this. When people recover from illness under the influence of fake treatments, they must of course in reality be healing themselves. But if and when people have the capacity to heal themselves by their own efforts, why do they not simply get on with it? Why ever should they wait for third-party permission — from the shaman or the sugar pill — to heal themselves? How strange that people should be condemned to remain dysfunctionally sick just because — as must still often happen — they have not received permission."
