The three terms delirium, dementia, and amnesic syndrome appear together in the classification manuals because they share a common, but not exclusive, organic aetiology. However, these conditions have little in common from a historical, clinical, and psychopathological perspective. Because the notion of 'organicity' is imprecise, it would perhaps be preferable to use Schneider's term 'corporeally based manifestations' ( korperlich begründbaren Psychosen). In this chapter, delirium, dementia, and the amnesic syndrome will be discussed separately from historical and psychopathological perspectives.
