The Mens Sana Monographs (MSM) are meant to forward resolute foundational enquiry into all issues dealing with man and society with focus on mental health and medicine but not restricted to them. Issues dealing with health, science, philosophy, religion, culture, and their inter-relationship, are very much the concern of MSM.
