Concept: Correction re: Schizophrenia.

So earlier I lumped Adolph Meyer in with the psychoanalysts. Certainly their stance on laboratory science had a similar impact on the development of psychiatry. Nevertheless, the conflation is incorrect, because the "Meyerians" were at odds with the psychoanalysts as often as with the Kraepelinists.

I'm adding Bayard Taylor Holmes, socialist, Chicago mayoral candidate, and one of the nations more prominent Kraepelin supporters to a list of people I have to learn more about. The glimpses I've caught here and there are very exciting.
