James E. Storm

Anorexia nervosa is best described as an addiction to starvation, rather than a neurosis or psychosis. A comparison is made between the symptomatic features of alcoholism and anorexia nervosa. The authors' parenthetical remarks about 1) anorexia as a perversion of appetite, and 2) anorexia as a regression to prepubertal functioning are not explored; this is unfortunate, as they are the most stimulating features of the article.
