Inhaltsangabe: Excerpt from Manic-Depressive Insanity and Paranoia
The conception of Manic-Depressive Insanity as a definite form of mental disorder, various and antithetical though some of the symptoms appear to be in different attacks and even in different phases of the same attack, is one of Professor Kræpelin's most happy generalisations. Naturally, so startling a departure from older classifications was not at first accepted by all, though the way for recognition had been paved by the differentiation and description of Folie Circulaire by French alienists, but further experience and familiarity with the idea led to the almost universal admission of its truth. It is to Professor Kræpelin's credit that he also has developed his own views with increase of knowledge, for he now includes what is often called Involution Melancholia in this group, his failure to do so in his original statement having been regarded by many as a mistake.
Professor Kræpelin's account of Manic-Depressive Insanity, conjoined with that of Dementia Præcox, forms probably his greatest achievement in psychiatry. The last word, however, has not been said on the subject. Many important problems have yet to be solved. Professor Kræpelin, for example, apparently takes the physiological view that the essential feature of Mania is excitement and excitability, and of Depression or Melancholia, inhibition and depression of function. This leads to difficulty when Anxious or Excited Melancholia comes to be dealt with, which is avoided if the psychological view be adopted, that the symptoms in Mania are but morbid developments of the feelings of elation or anger, and in Melancholia of depression and despair, or of fear and anxiety, a species of caricature of these feelings as Maudsley has suggested.
