Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease. CVIII, 1948: Healing Processes in Schizophrenia. P. Rube. Pp. 304–346.

Kenneth Mark Colby

Forty-two rambling pages of comments about schizophrenia satisfy the reader that they contain nothing that has not been said before. Rube is convinced there is something psychological going on in the disease, yet he is unable to say much more than that regarding it. There is no mention of dynamic concepts such as regression and restitution. As a psychotherapy, psychoanalysis 'would not only result in certain failure, but might also enhance a number of symptoms, reinforce delirious beliefs, and create morbid attitudes'. If such a paper is at all representative, then the French school has little to add to our knowledge of schizophrenia.
