The purpose of such conceptual categorization is not only to establish a commonly acceptable nomenclature that can reliably differentiate various forms of psychopathological experience, but to organize a set of concepts that can “help us to think, to learn, to discover new data which, in turn, lead us to develop new concepts” (Rosenzweig, 1982, p. 48).
