Abstract

Schizophrenia is a major psychiatric illness whose definition has varied with respect to both time and country. Thus, the “schizophrenia” referred to in the American literature of the late 1960s was different from that defined by the British psychiatric profession of the same era and different also from the accepted definitions in the United States today. This evolution of the schizophrenia construct makes it problematic to apply the literature from disparate places and eras to the modern schizophrenia patient.
