[Classification in actual psychiatry].

Abstract

The importance of diagnosis in psychiatry is relevant for therapeutic, research and public health questions. During the '70s, operational criteria improved ways for developing reliability and the basis of validity of psychiatric diagnosis. However, the possibility of a common language in psychiatry has been in doubt because of the proliferation of operational systems. There are also reductionist trends that could be dangerous for psychopathology and pedagogy.
