One point Stevens seems to be arguing is that mental disorders don't exist since there is not a corroborating biological cause. That's true for a good many illnesses. Examples include Lupus, MD, MS, rheumatoid arthritis, some cancers. We know WHAT happens, but not why. We know that some treatments work with some patients, other treatments work with other patients, some patients don't respond to any treatments and some patients spontaneously go into remission. Extrapolating, it seems that only diseases with bacterial, viral or external trauma as known could be classified as diseases.
