Psychopathology and Psychiatry – Pavlov

In this post, we will see the book I. P. Pavlov – Psychopathology And Psychiatry – Selected Works.

About the book

The book is a collection of Pavlov’s papers written at different times and offering a physiological interpretation of various psychopathological symptoms, syndromes and mental diseases, especially so widespread a disease as schizophrenia. The book also contains Pavlov’s articles which throw light on his teaching on types of nervous’ systems and experimental neuroses. These articles are very important for understanding the pathogenesis of various psychogenic disorders, reactive states, neuroses and psychopathies, i.e., problems of so-called borderline psychiatry.

Some of Pavlov’s articles published in the present edition deal with various aspects of his physiological teaching on higher nervous activity, particularly his conceptions of inhibition, sleep and hypnosis, with which the reader must familiarise himself to gain a better insight into his point of view on the physiological bases of mental disorders.

The book was compiled by Y. Popov and L. Rokhlin and  translated from Russian by D. Myshne and S. Belsky. The book was published in 1962 by Foreign Languages Publishing House.
