[Etiology and classification of mental disorders from viewpoint of "Universal genesis of psychoses"].

[Article in German]


The concept of a "Universal genesis of psychoses" has been worked on by the author for about 12 years. It is mostly biologically orientated and deals with the development, classification and therapy of psychotic syndromes in an unconventional manner. Prejudices which would only interfere with research have been avoided as far as possible, and new results e.g. of biochemistry have been included. A more purposeful treatment with psycho-pharmacological agents is aimed at. Special emphasis is laid on the negation of real demarcations between manic-depressive, cycloid and schizophrenic syndromes which are assumed to be caused by many factors, and on the fact that psychopathological basic symptoms are "fundamental conditions" principally characteristic of all psychotic syndromes in different constellations.
