Excerpt from Treatise on Insanity in Its Medical Relations

In presenting to the medical profession a new work on the subject of Insanity, it seems proper that I should state the reasons which have induced me to add another volume to the store of medico-psychological literature, and to point out briefly what are, I think, distinctive features of the present production.

I have long been convinced that the term "insanity" has hitherto been applied in altogether too limited and illogical a manner. It has been understood, both in and out of the profession, that a person, in order to be considered the subject of mental aberration, must, at some time or other, present certain marked symptoms, which he cannot avoid exhibiting, and which are sufficient to indicate to the world that he is not in his right mind.

Starting from the points that all normal mental phenomena are the result of the action of a healthy brain, and that all abnormal manifestations of mind are the result of the functionation of a diseased or deranged brain, I do not see why these latter should not be included under the designation of "insanity," as much as the former are embraced under the term "sanity." There can be no middle ground, for the brain is either in a healthy or in an unhealthy condition. If healthy, the product of its action is "sanity;" if unhealthy, "insanity."
