It was my fortune to spend a week at Göttingen in the month of May of this year, and the following notes of conversations and extracts from the published writings of Professor Meyer† may be taken as representing the opinion of the best German school of psychiatry at the present time. Professor Meyer's career has been long and distinguished. Educated at Berlin, imbued with an enthusiasm that impelled him to teaching there as early as 1858, he was in due course appointed to the Hamburg Asylum, whence he was transferred to Göttingen more than a quarter of a century ago. His name is familiar as an authority on mental diseases, and his present position is indicated by his having been selected to report upon “Psychiatry,” in the volume descriptive of the German Universities prepared for the Chicago Exhibition.
