The reception of Jaspers' general psychopathology outside of Europe
At the beginning of the 20th century, Karl Jaspers received some attention from the publication of his General Psychopathology, a step forward in the development of a new method of study and research in clinical psychiatry. A few decades later, the fourth edition of Jaspers work was acknowledged not only in the German-speaking countries, but also in many European and Latin American countries, as having a significant influence on the development of psychopathology. However, the reception in other parts of the world was very poor. This chapter analyzes the unbalanced reception of Jaspers' work outside of Europe and argues that General Psychopathology should be rediscovered due to its being the most significant contribution to the development of psychopathology.
