“Insanity: Modern Views as to its Nature and Treatment.” Glasgow, 1885.

Recent German writers on insanity make use of three expressions, Wahnsinn, Verrücktheit, and Verwirrtheit to denote three stages of mental disintegration which are especially met with in progressive paranoia. In the first, Wahnsinn, there are delusions, perhaps accompanied with hallucinations, which take more or less systematized form, and abide in the mind. In Verrücktheit the relation of the ideas or mental images is less rational, and mental impression is fleeting. In Verwirrtheit the incoherency of word and action is much increased, and the relation of ideas and hallucinations to one another is still more incongruous. There is a crowd of words destitute of any rational association. Cf. “Dict. of Psychological Med.”

See “British Guiana Medical Annual and Hospital Reports,” Demerara, 1891, p. 104.
