The Schizophrenias: Ours to Conquer
Schizophrenia is a syndrome, not a single disease. It is a collection of diseases characterized by two main sets of symptoms and signs: perceptual and thinking disorders. Carl Pfeiffer and his colleagues properly emphasize the plurality by use of The Schizophrenias. This conclusion is accepted by orthomolecular psychiatrists who base treatment using this concept, and by most research psychiatrists even when they insist on treating them all with similar tranquilizers. For a new approach to the schizophrenias we must credit the senior author of this book.
This impressive volume contains the observations and theories about the schizophrenias gathered by Carl Pfeiffer and colleagues over more than twenty years.
