The Concept of Schizophrenia

The Concept of Schizophrenia This article is only available in the PDF format. Download the PDF to view the article, as well as its associated figures and tables. Abstract The author reviews the concept of schizophrenia from the pre-Kraepelinian days to our time. He discusses classification and the physiological, dynamic, hereditary, and social factors concerned in the concept as well as the diagnosis and treatment of schizophrenia. Extremefairness is maintained in holding no special brief or in expressing an overcritical or accepting attitude toward any of the conflicting points of view. In a few concluding remarks the author does plead for a broad viewpoint, "The schizophrenic mind is one that has not adapted itself to the social environment." It is this stressful environment that the author believes needs study. This book represents the best available summary statements of the manifold concepts of schizophrenia. There is an excellent bibliography and index. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png A.M.A. Archives of Neurology & Psychiatry American Medical Association
