The Organon: A Book Advanced For Its Time

Here's the most recent translation of the old master.  Pretty dense stuff, but with some very pertinent observations.  p.204 on Mental Health " The physician...must always appear as if they credit such patients with reason."   He then goes on to discuss the beatings and torture of mental health patients common in his time.
