It will be recalled that shortly before the war aphasia was the subject of active discussion. This discussion had been precipitated in 1906 by the publication of the views of Marie. These views were novel and in a sense iconoclastic. They aroused decided opposition, notably on the part of Déjerine, and for a time a veritable conflict existed between two groups of neurologists who arrayed themselves on opposing sides. Numerous papers on aphasia appeared both in France and elsewhere. It was discussed at the meeting of the International Medical Congress at Buda-Pest in 1909, at the meeting of the International Medical Congress at London in 1913, and in February, 1914, the Philadelphia Neurological Society devoted an entire evening to the subject. Subsequently interest in aphasia was less active until the appearance of the important papers by Henry Head in Brain in 1920 and 1923.1
