The stone of madness: Starting points of the history of mental health

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Addressing the relatively recent concern of public health in the issue of mental health problems, the evolution of the concept of mental illness in the occidental pre-modern history is revised, as well as the reasons why it remained outside the mainstream of the professional healing activity. The differences between the naturalist and the supernatural views are explored as well.
