Psychiatry as a clinical science. From Emil Kraepelin to neo-Kraepelinism


Hoff, Paul (2004). Psychiatry as a clinical science. From Emil Kraepelin to neo-Kraepelinism. Vertex (Buenos Aires, Argentina), 15(55):42-47.

Abstract

The fundamentals of Kraepelin's theory have been revisited by researchers known as "neokraepelians", from the stand point of the neurobiology. In the case of the revision of Kraepelin, as it happens with other authors, there are some acritical reductionisms. This article tries to make a contribution to the understanding of Kraepelin's thought as well as the historical context of his work, starting with a revision of the clinical and practical position in the present psychiatry.
