Revising his PhD dissertation in psychotherapy at University College Dublin, Dalzell, now a practitioner in Dublin, explores what was distinctive about Sigmund Freud's conception of the predisposition to psychosis--as exhibited in his 1911 Schreber text--in relation to the views of his psychiatrist contemporaries and of psychoanalysis after him. He argues that Freud reversed the order of priority in late-19th-century aetiologies of psychosis, and that he privileged subjective causes without returning to the subjective paradigms of early-19th-century Romantic psychiatry and without obviating the legitimate claims of psychiatry on inherited biological predisposition.
