Abstract [en]

In the extensive note book written by Pehr Osbeck (1723-1805), the world traveler, from his student years in 1746-47, now in the collections of the Swedish Medical Society, we can follow how his professor methodically developed his theory of diseases with particular reference to the fourth class, morbi mentales, mental illnesses. This class is subdivided into special orders, just like the flora, the first of which deals with deficiencies in judgment, morbi judiciales. Other orders concern imagination (imaginatio) and the will / desire (voluntas). In their turn, these are divided into sub-groups (genera).
