Grundriss der Seelenheilkunde. 2 Bde.
Berlin, Theodor Christain Friedrich Enslin, 1835-1837, 8, X, 809,(1) VI, 975, (1) pp., 2 feine marmorierte Pappbände im Stil der Zeit, mit Rückenschilddern und Rückenvergoldung kleiner St.a.Tit. First Edition! Christian Ludwig Ideler (1766-1846) "was primarily interested in the non-somatic causes of mental illness, although he certainly accepted somatic causes as well. He pointed out the importance of the passions in the genesis of insanity and questioned how they could be so poorly controlled. This line of questioning eventually led to a central point in Ideler's psychiatric thinking: drives. According to Ideler, drives are elements of the mind. They help satisfy human needs and are consequently necessary components of human life. Each drive develops on its own. Certain external influences and a lack of morals can lead to drive disharmony. One drive may develop at the expense of others and lead to an imbalance-namely, to insanity. Knowledge of the existence of the drives and the realisation of the necessity of their uniform development was an important premise for the maintenance of psychic health and a harmonious mental life. Those who are unable to achieve this state on their own, however, are prone to insanity and need a doctor's help. This is why only a moral and well-educated doctor should practise psychiatry. In addition to his drive psychology, which certainly shows parallels with Sigmund Freud's (1856-1939) later psychoanalytical ideas, Ideler's biographic-psychogenic approach is also noteworthy. In his case studies, he made particular use of the newly established discipline of forensic psychiatry, thereby helping to validate it. He emphasised the necessity of a comprehensive psychological examination that takes into consideration personal history, mental and physical peculiarities and also the social milieu and situation in which delinquent acts are committed. Ideler thought it particularly important to view people in their entirety he strove to heal the ailing person, not the illness. This kind of comprehensive, anthropological approach makes good sense in the age of scientific medicine."
