Abstract:

"This reprinted book, The Psychology of Insanity (3rd ed.), was originally published in 1916. The author contends that no substantial alterations were made to the first edition, published in 1912, in preparation of the third edition. This book lays no claim to be a comprehensive treatise upon the psychology of insanity. The number of independent schools of thought existing at the present day, and the fundamental divergence in their methods of investigation, make it obviously impossible to compress such a treatise into the limits of a small volume. All that has been attempted here is the presentation of certain recent developments in abnormal psychology which have already yielded results of fundamental importance, and which seem to offer an exceptionally promising field for further investigation. Many of the theories to which he will be introduced have not as yet been firmly established. A very large number of the general principles enunciated in this book are due to the genius of Prof. Freud of Vienna, probably the most original and fertile thinker who has yet entered the field of abnormal psychology. Although, however, I cannot easily express the extent to which I am indebted to him, I am by no means prepared to embrace the whole of the vast body of doctrines which Freud and his followers have now laid down."
