Review by:
Peter Richter

This hefty volume contains some thirty papers on shcizophrenia given at the 1964 annual meeting of the American Psychopathological Association. While the articles reflect the varied points of view of a number of well-known investigators in the field, with few exceptions they contain little of interest to most analysts. As there is no over-all continuity of theoretical viewpoint and the orientation of the bulk of the studies is either organic or statistical, it is difficult to do more than touch upon a few areas that stimulated the reviewer's personal interests.

There is a phenomenological study by Frieske and Wilson of the formal qualities of hallucinations. Using a brief series of interviews with a large number of patients suffering from schizophrenia, organic and affective psychoses, a comparison is made on the basis of the patient's subjective experiences. The comparisons, though interesting, seem less fruitful than the detailed material about schizophrenic visual hallucinations.
