Abstract

Traditionally, schizophrenia has been classified as a functional psychosis--emphasizing that underlying brain pathology does not exist as a cause of the disorder (Coleman, 1964). Recently, however, the importance of organic factors in the disease has gained some research support (Hoch and Zubin, 1957; Heath, 1960; Kety, 1960; Bercel, 1960). In light of this research, an extensive re-evaluation of all aspects of the disorder needs to be undertaken. Synthesis of divergent information from the discipline of biology, psychology, and sociology into a complete and accurate re-evaluation of schizophrenia is of vital importance.
