Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Kurt Schneider (7 January 1887 - 27 October 1967) was a German psychiatrist known largely for his writing on the diagnosis and understanding of schizophrenia. Schneider was born in Crailsheim, Kingdom of W rttemberg, and trained in medicine in Berlin and T bingen. He was drafted for military service in World War I and later obtained a postgraduate qualification in psychiatry. In 1931 he became director of the Psychiatric Research Institute in Munich, which was previously founded by Emil Kraepelin. Disgusted by the developing tide of psychiatric eugenics championed by the Nazi Party, Schneider left the institute and served as an army doctor during World War II. After the war, anti-Nazi academics were appointed to serve in, and rebuild Germany's medical institutions and Schneider was given the post of Dean of the Medical School at Heidelberg University. Schneider kept this post until his retirement in 1955.
