This paper is the first to present and assess material gathered on a psychiatrist and psychotherapist by East German Intelligence Service Stasi, officially referred to as Ministry of National Security (Ministerium für Staatssicherheit, MfS), over the course of several decades.We have analysed all files on professor of psychiatry Dietfried Müller-Hegemann (1910-1989) preserved in the authority now responsible for preserving, studying and making all files of the former East German Secret Service accessible (BStU). The material gained from different authorities within the MfS and on a variety of topics showed significant differences in relevance, in terms of both their quality and their amount. Read More

Archiv für Leipziger Psychiatriegeschichte, Klinik und Poliklinik für Psychiatrie und Psychotherapie, Universität Leipzig, Semmelweisstr. 10, 04103, Leipzig, Deutschland.

Paul Ferdinand Schilder was born in Vienna in 1886 and died in New York in 1940. He is nowadays remembered predominantly for his contributions to modern psychiatry and psychotherapy; however, he was also a neurologist and neuroscientist and in particular in his early years, he researched and published on neuropathological topics. This paper focuses on his scientific work during his years in Middle Germany (1909-1914), where he worked with Gabriel Anton in Halle and Paul Flechsig in Leipzig. Read More

["We're going to place a ureteral stent …" : Development and use of the terms stent and splint by German-speaking urologists].

Urologe A 2018 Jul;57(7):836-845

Institut für Geschichte, Theorie und Ethik der Medizin, Heinrich-Heine-Universität, Düsseldorf, Deutschland.

The use of eponyms has a long history in medicine. But it is a rare case that a term not associated with a procedure or an anatomical description has come into use. The terms "stent" and "splint" in German and English used as a verb and a noun are a typical example. Read More

[Emil Kraepelin's time in Dorpat - Did this stay made marks in Russian and Soviet psychiatry?]

Fortschr Neurol Psychiatr 2017 Nov 22;85(11):675-682. Epub 2017 Nov 22.

Archiv für Leipziger Psychiatriegeschichte, Klinik und Poliklinik für Psychiatrie und Psychotherapie, Universität Leipzig.

In Russia, German psychiatrist Emil Kraepelin (1856-1926) is regarded as an influential and famous personality in the history of the field. This study discusses whether it was his period in the Russian Empire in the years 1886 to 1891 when he worked at Dorpat University (today Tartu, Estonia) that raised his popularity in Russia. Our research shows that all of his writings which had been translated into Russian language derive from a period much later than Dorpat. Read More

Nervenarzt 2019 Jan;90(1):58-61

Archiv für Leipziger Psychiatriegeschichte, Klinik und Poliklinik für Psychiatrie und Psychotherapie, Universität Leipzig, Semmelweisstraße 10, 04103, Leipzig, Deutschland.

The article highlights the important work of the Russian psychiatrist Victor Khrisanfovich Kandinsky. His merits, in particular those in the fields of hallucinations and schizophrenias, have hitherto been neglected despite the fact that several of his articles have been published in German medical journals. He defined the term pseudohallucination in a way which is still common today. Read More

Institut für Geschichte, Theorie und Ethik der Medizin, Heinrich-Heine-Universität, Düsseldorf, Deutschland.

Our research group has reconstructed why the board certified urologists Werner Forssmann (1904-1979) and Charles Huggins (1901-1997) received the Nobel Prize in physiology or medicine (1956, and 1966, respectively). But the history of "Urology and the Nobel Prize" is in fact more multifaceted than the success stories of these two laureates suggest.

Archiv für Leipziger Psychiatriegeschichte, Klinik für Psychiatrie, Medizinische Fakultät der Universität Leipzig.

In the 19th century, collective behavior or crowd psychology was given a broad interest in psychiatric research. But until today the focus had always been on French, English or German publications neglecting the comprehensive Russian research that exists. That's why, the authors wish to elaborate 19th century Russian points of view on crowd psychology. Read More

[The career of the psychiatrist Dietfried Müller-Hegemann (1910-1989) : Example of a politically motivated rise and fall in the German Democratic Republic].

Authors:
H Steinberg

Nervenarzt 2018 Jan;89(1):78-87

Archiv für Leipziger Psychiatriegeschichte, Klinik und Poliklinik für Psychiatrie und Psychotherapie, Universität Leipzig, Semmelweisstr. 10, 04103, Leipzig, Deutschland.

Dietfried Müller-Hegemann was one of the prominent figures in East German psychiatry and psychotherapy of the 1950s and 1960s. Having been a communist prior to 1933, a resistance fighter during the National Socialist regime and having gone through political training during his exile in Soviet Russia, he proved to be a committed member of the new ruling SED socialist party in Eastern Germany. As such both governmental and party organs regarded him as a promising and reliable party member to be supported and implemented as executive staff within the new, socialist scientific system.

Working with Instruments: Ernst Mach as Material Epistemologist, a Short Introduction.

Sci Context 2016 12;29(4):429-433

Archives Henri Poincaré,Université de Lorraine (campus

With the death of Ernst Mach on February 19, 1916, one day after his seventy-eighth birthday, a question finally became explicit that had been looming for some time. It was as simple as it was fundamental: who, in the end, was this man, a scientist or a philosopher? The importance of this question for contemporaries can easily be gleaned from the obituaries that appeared in the weeks following Mach's death: one in the Physikalische Zeitschrift, written by Albert Einstein, and another in the Archiv für die Geschichte der Philosophie, written by Mach's former student Heinrich Gomperz. They both addressed this critical issue in plain words. Read More

[Müller-Hegemann's classification of depressions of 1964 as a proposal for a conceptualization of affective disorders: A critical review].

Klinik und Poliklinik für Psychiatrie und Psychotherapie, Universität Leipzig, Archiv für Leipziger Psychiatriegeschichte, Leipzig.

Against the background of current discussions on the classification of psychiatric disorders, this study analyses and discusses the East-German psychiatrist Dietfried Müller-Hegemann's concept of a clinical classification of depressions of 1964.In his paper, Müller-Hegemann differentiated between two main forms of depression, namely the "vitally tinged depression" (= melancholy), found mainly in the depressive phases of the manic-depressive disorder, and the "depressive disgruntlement" (= dysthymia) seen in "reactive and neurotic depression", "involutional depression", and in the depressive states in psychopathic personalities. Due to a lack of sufficient biological evidence, Müller-Hegemann refrained from a purely etiological differentiation. Read More

Department of Vegetation Ecology, Institute of Botany of the Czech Academy of Sciences, Lidická 25/27, Brno, CZ-60200, Czech Republic.

Forests cover approximately one-third of Central Europe. Oak (Quercus) and European beech (Fagus sylvatica) are considered the natural dominants at low and middle elevations, respectively. Many coniferous forests (especially of Picea abies) occur primarily at midelevations, but these are thought to have resulted from forestry plantations planted over the past 200 years. Read More

Corporate museums make important contributions to science history and daily life. They are an essential part of the historical marketing of organizations, including scientific associations. The museum for the history of urology organized and housed by the German Society of Urology (DGU) can be compared to a corporate museum, because the institution serves two purposes: it represents the society to a wider public and it helps to reconstruct and analyze the history of urology and the history of the society.

,,Wir wollen mit den ersten Heften nicht gleich Sigerist und die Amerikaner verärgern! “

Sudhoffs Arch 2016;100(1):23-51

Drawing on scattered archival records this article explores the circumstances allowing the new release of the German medico-historical journal “Sudhoffs Archiv” in 1952. The article focuses on the paralyzing conditions of the publishing trade in post-1945 Germany due to a tremendous lack of resources, a growing political East-West-antagonism and the Nazi background of both authors and publishers. The article examines how academics competed for influence in the newly-structured field of German Medical History which, in the 1950s, underwent a generational change. Read More

Karl Sudhoff (1853–1938) und der Nationalsozialismus.

Sudhoffs Arch 2016;100(1):2-22

The 100th anniversary of the appearance of Sudhoffs Archiv, founded in 1917, suggests a view not only on the long history of this journal. It also has stimulated the editors to take a closer look at the founder himself, Karl Sudhoff (1853–1938), and his proximity to National Socialism. This paper offers a brief biography of Sudhoff, and–based on a documentation offered by Werner Kümmel–provides all the data known with regard to Sudhoff's attitude towards his Jewish colleagues, before and after 1933, and the possible motives behind his joining the Nazi party in 1933.

While Emil Kraepelin's comprehensive psychiatric oeuvre has attracted researchers' attention, his studies on sleep disorders and their treatment as well as on the interconnections between sleep and mental disorders so far seem to have been neglected.This article identifies and analyzes Kraepelin's sporadic contributions on the pathology of sleep, the comorbidities and treatment made between 1883 and 1924 in textbooks and isolated papers as well as in a presentation that was also published and compares them with current opinions in sleep research.Kraepelin never published a dedicated work on sleep, apart from a summary of the different narcotics; however, his occasional statements reveal astonishing insights and in particular his clear etiologically oriented classification of sleep disorders is captivating.

[Are the current concepts of obsessive disorders a novelty? From Westphal (1877) and Thomsen (1895) to ICD-10 and DSM-5].

Nervenarzt 2015 Sep;86(9):1162-7

Archiv für Leipziger Psychiatriegeschichte, Klinik und Poliklinik für Psychiatrie, Universität Leipzig, Semmelweisstr. 10, 04103, Leipzig, Deutschland.

In German-speaking countries it was Carl Westphal who in 1877 offered the first precise definition of obsessive ideas and distinguished obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) as an independent disorder in its own right. The criteria mentioned by him for establishing OCD gave rise to a debate on the character and classification of OCD but were not fully acknowledged by his colleagues at the time. In 1895 Westphal's student Robert Thomsen tried to substantiate all points in his teacher's theory that had raised criticism. Read More

Institute of Physiology and Pathophysiology, Marburg University, 35037, Marburg, Germany.

Over the last decade, we have seen an enormous increase in the number of experimental studies on two-pore-domain potassium channels (K2P-channels). The collection of reviews and original articles compiled for this special issue of Pflügers Archiv aims to give an up-to-date summary of what is known about the physiology and pathophysiology of K2P-channels. This introductory overview briefly describes the structure of K2P-channels and their function in different organs. Read More

[Differential diagnosis of bipolar disorder: historical and clinical implications and perspectives].

Fortschr Neurol Psychiatr 2015 Feb 27;83(2):74-82. Epub 2015 Feb 27.

Klinik und Poliklinik für Psychiatrie und Psychotherapie, Medizinische Fakultät der Universität Leipzig.

In DSM-5, bipolar disorder (BS) is no longer conceptualised as a pure mood disorder together with unipolar depression, but as a bridge between schizophrenia and depressive disorders. This nosological classification is founded on the historical context of the 19th century. In addition to unipolar depression and schizophrenia, schizoaffective disorder, borderline personality disorder and attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) overlap with BS symptomatology.

The Archiv für Ohrenheilkunde (Archive of Otology): a structural analysis of the first 50 years (1864-1914).

Eur Arch Otorhinolaryngol 2015 Jun 19;272(6):1347-55. Epub 2015 Feb 19.

Department of Otorhinolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery, Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg, Ernst-Grube-Str. 40, 06120, Halle (Saale), Germany.

In 1864, Anton von Tröltsch in Würzburg, Hermann Schwartze in Halle/Saale, and Adam Politzer in Vienna founded the Archiv für Ohrenheilkunde (Archive of Otology), the ancestor of the European Archives of Oto-Rhino-Laryngology and Head and Neck. It was the world's first journal solely devoted to otology, and thus to otorhinolaryngology. The aim of this study was to analyse the structure of this journal and its contents during the first 50 years of its publication, until it definitively became an otorhinolaryngological journal in 1915.

What generated the creation of the Archiv für Ohrenheilkunde, the predecessor of this journal, 150 years ago?

Authors:
Albert Mudry

Eur Arch Otorhinolaryngol 2015 Jun 14;272(6):1341-5. Epub 2015 Feb 14.

Department of Otolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery, Stanford University School of Medicine, 801 Welch Road, Stanford, CA, 94305-5739, USA,

At the beginning of 1864, von Tröltsch in Würzburg, Politzer in Vienna, and Schwartze in Halle, published the Archiv für Ohrenheilkunde, the first scientific journal devoted entirely to the diseases of the ear. As a very few details exist about the creation of this journal, three different contextual and influential aspects were studied to understand the generation of this journal: the means to transmit medical knowledge and the respective place of specialized medical journals; the concept of medical specialty and the establishment of otology as a specialty; and the level of otological knowledge and the need to have its proper journal. This research allows one to demonstrate that the creation of the Archiv für Ohrenheilkunde in 1864 arrived at the right historical moment. Read More

[The identity of medical psychology: a historical quest].

Authors:
Holger Steinberg

Psychother Psychosom Med Psychol 2014 Nov 5;64(11):411-20. Epub 2014 Nov 5.

Archiv für Leipziger Psychiatriegeschichte, Klinik für Psychiatrie und Psychotherapie, Universität Leipzig.

The starting point of this study is the current uncertainty in German-speaking medical psychology about its actual and very own natural area of expertise. The current study ventures to advance the hypothesis that part of this uncertainty is due to the fact that during the scientific area in its history (approx. 1850-1960) medical psychology abandoned its historical core competence as it emerged and developed during the age of enlightenment (end of 17(th)-18(th) centuries).
