Arthur Janov has expressed it in terms of, and to the meaning of [and he
does it so simply that most people -- given they were not AEVASIVEly
adjusted -- should be able to at least intuitively agree] that: "Depression
is repression of Pain" .
Or, IOW, loosely described, partly using my own -- most deeply schematically
defined, possible -- (acronymal) "concEPTs":
Depression is a muting mode of AEVASIVEly handling life-situationally put
(piled up - via any relevant form of conditioning - in the brain)
[If you dare you may go to http://www.ozemail.com.au/~fellin/main.htm and
take a look at what I describe as:
A (my) "philanthropically oriented outlook", and an "encompassing
philosophical thesis" or "explanatory platform of terms"; a "platform" for a
(in a sense) "effectively philosophy terminating", or, at least, a close to
(psychologically) onerously overwhelming "philosophically optimised
overview" -- one that is *basically* entirely aligned with scientifically
and academically established priniples and theories.
