"The Theory of Schizophrenic Negativism" is a classic work on schizophrenia by Dr. E. Bleuler, translated by William A. White. Paul Eugen Bleuler (1857 - 1939) was a Swiss psychiatrist and eugenicist. He was most famous for his work in the field of understanding mental illness. He also coined a number of common psychiatric terms, including "schizophrenia", "schizoid", and "autism". Contents include: "Ambitendency", "Ambivalency", "The Schizophrenic Splitting of the Psyche", "The Lack of Clearness and Imperfect Logic of t he Schizophrenic", "Irrationality in the Schizoid Mind", "Delusion and Hallucination", etc. This fascinating early work on the subject will appeal to those with an interest in psychology and the development of related ideas and theories. Many vintage books like this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now complete with the original text and artwork for the enjoyment of readers now and for years to come.
