The Concept Of The Object Relation In The Writings Of Gotthard Booth, M.D.: An Example Of An Emerging Paradigm In Medicine, Thomas Charles Foster

Theses and Dissertations (Comprehensive)

The writings of Gotthard Booth, M.D., especially his concept of object relation, demonstrate a change in medical thought away from a mechanistic to a holistic conception of man. His concept of the object relation and the diagnostic rationale that he developed from it reveal changes in medical conceptualization that are consistent with those changes in conceptualization across a variety of disciplines that have been identified as part of an emerging paradigm.
