Abstract

Abstract Since Kraepelin, 1 at the end of the last century, compounded some distinct psychiatric disorders already described by others into a nosological entity that was subsequently named “schizophrenia” by Eugen Bleuler, 2 discussion on the psychopathological criteria to be employed in diagnosis of this disease has not ceased. The diagnostic guidelines in practice up to the 1960s have, during the last two decades, been subjected to increased questioning, out of which new psychopathological concepts seem to be emerging.
