‘De la non-existence de la monomanie’, by Jean-Pierre Falret (1854) Introduction and translation (Part 2)

Abstract : The following text is the conclusion of a two-part translation of Falret’s 1854 essay arguing against the concept of monomania. In order to shine new light on the conceptual understanding of madness, the text emphasizes the importance of thorough clinical observations and the perspective of the whole patient, rejecting the disproportionate attention given to isolated symptoms, and in this respect his work represents a turning point away from the more traditional alienism.
