Abstract

Carl Wernicke derived his theory of the pathomechanism of mental illness of his theories on aphasia. For this reason Jaspers accused him of mythologizing the brain. On the other hand, however, Jaspers does admit that Wernicke has produced one of the most important works on psychology and says that a serious study of this work is something that no researcher can do without. Now, through the influence of modern biological psychiatry, the psychiatry of Wernicke and his school is once more gaining in significance.
