Die medizinische Psychologie als Theoretische Grundlage der allgemeinen Medizin

W. Iwanow

Die medizinische Psychologie ist gerade das Fach, das diese wesentliche Schwäche der heutigen Medizin überwindet und einen vollständigen Zugang zum Kranken zu schaffen (oder dazu beizutragen) pflegt. Hier geht es nicht nur um eine ,,mechanische Vereinigung" des Somas und der Psyche, sondern um ein tiefstes und vollständigstes Verstehen des psycho-physiologischen Wesens des Menschen.

[Book review]

SIMKÓ Alfréd

[The authors emphasise in their foreword that although their work is conceived in the biological aspect, this does not in itself mean that they abandon their unified psychiatric approach. This work, which deserves only praise, introduces the reader to the basic concepts of neurobiology with extraordinary thoroughness, with a precise delineation of the sub-tasks and in a readable style.]
