9781331051183: The Pathology and Therapeutics of Mental Diseases (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from The Pathology and Therapeutics of Mental Diseases

The Utrecht Professor, J. L. C. Schroeder van der Kolk (the renovator of the Dutch Institution for the Insane), whose death took place early in May, 1862, was long occupied with the plan of comparing together his physiological studies and his practical experience of mental diseases in order to lay them before the public. But as so often happens in life, he yet needed some special inducement to enter upon the work, and the occasion presented itself in the autumn of 1861, when two students of medicine in Utrecht, Herr P. Templeman van der Hoeven, and the undersigned, from the want of a psychiatric clinic at our University, betook themselves to Schroeder van der Kolk, with a request to be introduced under his guidance into the domain of Mental Diseases.

He readily acceded to our request, and immediately arranged that we should come to his study twice a week, when he would read to us what he had elaborated for his book, and converse with us thereupon.

We have thus seen the book arise, have recognised its object, and we are aware of the value the author set on it, and of how much time and trouble it had cost him.

He accomplished the undertaking with assiduous zeal, as if he felt that his career was hastening to its end, and that he must bestir himself to complete the crowning work of his literary activity. Death, indeed, overtook him while engaged in this labour, but he previously expressed his wish-that the work should be published.

My friend, Dr. H. W. Schroeder van der Kolk, then paid me the compliment of entrusting to me the fulfilment of his father's wish.
