Important work on mental illness that "broke new ground in psychiatry in a number of ways . . . [combining] the latest philosophical ideas, that is psychological knowledge, with accumulated medical experience of mental disease, that is psychiatry, into a ‘philosophy and pathology of the human mind’" (Hunter & Macalpine, p. 559). Crichton’s treatise was the first in English to discuss forensic aspects of psychiatry. Contains the earliest description of what is now known as ADHD (attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder); first to recognize aphasia as a "disturbance of memory" rather than a symptom of paralysis or insanity.
