Samenvatting

Network models block reductionism about psychiatric disorders only if models are interpreted in a realist manner - that is, taken to represent "what psychiatric disorders really are." A flexible and more instrumentalist view of models is needed to improve our understanding of the heterogeneity and multifactorial character of psychiatric disorders.
