Traité médico-philosophique sur l’aliénation mentale ou la manie.

Paris: Richard, Caille & Ravier, 1801.

Pinel founded the French School of Psychiatry. He was among the first to treat the insane humanely; he dispensed with chains and placed his patients under the care of specially selected physicians. Garrison considered the above book one of the foremost medical classics, giving as it did a great impetus to humanitarian treatment of the insane. English translation, Sheffield, 1806. The second French edition, Paris, Brosson, 1809 was very substantially enlarged by Pinel.
