PsychopathologyBook - 1920
This book has been written for the professional student of human behavior who must have an unprejudiced insight into human nature in order to deal justly and intelligently with problems of abnormal behavior as they are brought to the physician, rectory, police courts, prisons and asylums, and the directors of schools and colleges, and the commanders of military and naval organizations. In order to avoid speculation and theorizing, most of the space is devoted to plain expositions of the actual difficulties of cases. They are presented to speak for themselves. Naturally an enormous amount of valuable data on delusions, hallucinations, symbols, symptoms, defensive and compensatory methods of thinking, different types of inferiorities and causes of inferiorities, etc., is scattered through these cases. The most important illustrations have been collected together in the index to be readily accessible to the reader. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2004 APA, all rights reserved).
