Abstract

Kurt Goldstein was a pioneer of neuropsychology; his long career bridged a time-span between nineteenth century European behavioral neurology and the modern era of clinical neuropsychology. In this retrospective analysis of his major contributions, it is suggested that many of his previously ignored or rejected ideas have gained wide acceptance in their modern versions. Illustrations of this suggestion are offered in the areas of conceptualization of symptom formation, frontal lobe function, the abstract attitude, aphasia, schizophrenia, rehabilitation, and neuropsychological assessment.
