Über Natur und den Ursprung der Geistes-Zerrüttung, ein kurzes System der Physiologie und Pathologie des menschlichen Geistes.
Leipzig, Kleefeld, 1798.. (17,5 x 10,5 cm). XXVI, 510 S. Pappband der Zeit.. Erste deutsche Ausgabe seines Hauptwerkes, in dem erstmals in der englischen Psychiatrie die Geisteskrankheiten auf körperliche und psychische Ursachen zurückgeführt werden. - "An important contribution to psychiatry, Crichton combined the latest psychological knowledge with medicine's clinical experiences of mental illness. His chief goal was to analyze the human mind and explore the causes of mental disease. Crichton did not have extensive experience in clinical psychiatry and drew heavily on the German literature for illustrative case histories. He was also one of the first who discussed the forensic aspects of psychiatry in an English treatise on the subject and played an important role in identifying aphasia as a disease or injury of the brain centers and not necessarily a mental illness" (Heirs). - Gestempelt. Einband etwas berieben und bestoßen. - Hirsch/H. II, 143; vgl. Heirs of Hippocrates 1191 (2.dt.Ausg.)
