ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS; ABOUT THE AUTHOR; PREFACE; Introduction; CHAPTER ONE Freud's exemplary case of psychosis: Daniel Paul Schreber; CHAPTER TWO Disposition to psychosis in Freud's Schreber text; CHAPTER THREE Psychosis in Freud's papers before and after his Schreber text; CHAPTER FOUR Freud and Emil Kraepelin; CHAPTER FIVE Freud and the Viennese psychiatrists; CHAPTER SIX Freud and Eugen Bleuler; CHAPTER SEVEN Hereditary disposition in Freud's aetiological chain; CHAPTER EIGHT The reception of Freud's 1911 aetiology by psychoanalysts; CHAPTER NINE Jacques Lacan on Freud's Schreber.
Summary: This book investigates what was distinctive about the predisposition to psychosis Freud posited in Daniel Paul Schreber, a presiding judge in Saxony's highest court. It argues that Freud's 1911 Schreber text reversed the order of priority in late nineteenth-century conceptions of the disposing causes of psychosis - the objective-biological and subjective-biographical - to privilege subjective disposition to psychosis, but without returning to the paradigms of early nineteenth-century Romantic psychiatry and without obviating the legitimate claims of biological psychiatry in relation to heredit.
