Shapiro (psychology, New School for Social Research) deepens his classic studies of psychopathology with the conceptualization of a dynamics of the whole character: a self-regulatory system that encompasses personal attitudes, modes of activity, and relationship with the external world. He demonstrates that symptomatically and diagnostically diverse conditions are not as discrete as they seem. He shows the formal relations of obsessive compulsive to paranoid, hysterical to psychopathic, and psychopathic to hypomanic conditions, and examines the relation of neurotic conditions to schizophrenia.
