Die beginnende Schizophrenie. Versuch einer Gestaltanalyse des Wahns
Klaus Conrad (June 19, 1905 in Reichenberg – 5 May 1961 in Göttingen) was a German neurologist and psychiatrist with important contributions to neuropsychology and psychopathology. He joined the Nazi Party (NSDAP) in 1940. He was best known as a professor of psychiatry and neurology, and director of the University Psychiatric Hospital in Göttingen from 1958 until his death.
His main work: Die beginnende Schizophrenie. Versuch einer Gestaltanalyse des Wahns (1958), describes the early state of schyzophrenia and the typical schizophrenic aspects. From this monograph, terms as „Trema“, „Apophänie“(apophany), and „Überstieg“ were coined.
