Abstract

Abstract In an issue of the Archives which does honor to Adolf Meyer it is not necessary to apologize for, or explain, the apparently loose and unorthodox term that appears in the title of this essay or to assure the reader that there is no intention in it to postulate a new "disease." Rather, the title is intended to call attention to a picture encountered not infrequently, especially in psychoanalytic practice, and it was chosen by analogy with similarly loose current terms, such as "neurotic," "psychogenic" and "hysterical" depression. Dr. Meyer wrote:1 I do not share the holy horror of the Ding an sich or noumenon entertained by some people; it is well that we should have concepts and words for the totalities even if they never can be realized as wholly indisputable entities. For both scientific and practical purposes, it is, however, wisest... to choose one's noumena or ideal References 1. Meyer, Adolf: The Aims and Meaning of Psychiatric Diagnosis , Am. J.
