Abstract

The subject of this book is based on two sets of lectures delivered by the author, the first before the Washington Psychoanalytical Association on "Studies in the Psychoanalytical Aspects of Cerebral Neuropathology," and the second before the staff of the Phipps Psychiatric Clinic of Johns Hopkins Hospital, Baltimore, on the "Relation Between the Personality and Motility of Schizophrenics." Much of the material has already appeared in the German literature. The work is divided into two parts, the first being subdivided into seven chapters, and the second part into six. It would be impossible to review a book of this kind, for the subjects are of such great variance as, for example, the problems of consciousness, tone, speech disturbances, psychic and organic apparatus, catalepsy, actual causes and regression in neurosis and psychosis, and so on. The book is well worth perusal, for it contains an interesting and refreshing point of view.
