On the writing Of the Insane

9781535243001: On the writing Of the Insane

A reproduction of a book published in 1870. "The letters of the insane are worth study — as the most reliable evidence of the state of the patient’s mind for the time being ; they are a sort of involuntary photograph, and for this reason it is often useful to make patients write, as well as to converse with them when investigating cases of lunacy. I propose to give a few examples of such compositions, and it may be convenient to consider them under the following heads : 1. As illustrating chronic insanity. 2. As illustrating acute attacks. 3. As (rarely) the sole evidence. 4. As a sign of convalescence. 5. As indicating an on-coming attack. 6. As illustrating the phases of cases of ordinary mania. 7. As showing the changes the handwriting undergoes in general paralysis."
