Heirs of Hippocrates 1939. FIRST EDITION of Luys' comprehensive treatise on mental diseases, in which he discusses the anatomy and physiology of the nervous system. "The etiology, symptomatology, and classification of mental diseases are covered and special consideration is given to the psychoses." (Heirs of Hippocrates). "Besides neuroanatomical and neurological work, Luys contributed significantly to the study of neuropsychiatry. The clinical and pathological observations on mental diseases that he made while head of the Maison desante d'lvry were brilliantly summarized in his voluminous Traite clinique et pratique des maladies mentales (Clinical and practical treatment of mental diseases) published in 1881 and for which he received the prestigious Lallemand Prize of the Académie de Médecine. In this treatise, Luys underlines the close links that he thought existed between morbid states and normal psychic activities and advocates the idea that madness was nothing else than a malfunction of brain psychological activities." (J. Bogousslavsky, Following Charcot: A Forgotten History of Neurology and Psychiatry, 2011, p. 130). - Visit our website to see more images!
