Reviews

"As one of the earliest entries in what would become psychotherapy, Antoine Despine's monograph is of great significance for psychologists, psychiatrists, and historians of medicine and science. This fine translation brings Despine's seminal work to an English-language readership for the first time, contextualizing it with invaluable scholarly apparatus." - Daniel N. Robinson, Philosophy Faculty, Oxford University
