Yes, he's in his late eighties but still practicing. He is interested in the history of psychology and language........ Do you still speak with your psychiatrist friend, Little David? .......
I sent him this:
This was his response:
"L Ron had a way with words & Eugen Bleuler had a word for it."
When I asked him what Bleuler's word for that was, he said: "dementia praecox"
I then sent him this:
Bleuler introduced the term "schizophrenia" to the world in a lecture in Berlin on April 24, 1908. However, perhaps as early as 1907 he and his colleagues had been using the term in Zurich to replace Kraepelin's term dementia praecox. He revised and expanded his schizophrenia concept in his seminal study of 1911, Dementia Praecox, oder Gruppe der Schizophrenien (Dementia Praecox, or the Group of Schizophrenias). Like Emil Kraepelin, he argued that dementia praecox, or "the schizophrenias," was fundamentally a physical disease process characterized by exacerbations and remissions.
