  • Foundation building is neither picturesque nor especially interesting, but it is indispensable. However fair the structure is to be, one must first lay the rough-hewn stones upon which it is to rest. It would be much pleasanter in this sketch to display at once the minarets and towers, and stained-glass windows; but that can only be done when one's castle is in Spain. Would we comprehend the Germany of to-day, we must hold firmly in our minds an epitome of what it has been, and see vividly the devious path of its development through the ages.

  • As is the case with all of the volumes in this series, this book seeks to serve as a bridge between the vastly different worlds of psychology and psychiatry, and the law, and specifically to guide those boundary spanners — forensic mental health experts — who regularly set foot in both worlds at once. In this case, we turn to the civil law, which establishes a set of rights and duties that govern the daily business of life, and the manner in which citizens interact with one another.

  • Patients provide valid informed consent to a treatment or a diagnostic procedure if they have sufficient capacity, have been given appropriate information, and give consent freely without coercion or undue influence. When a patient’s capacity for treatment consent is in doubt, a clinician must determine whether the patient indeed has the capacity. It is a common reason behind requests for psychiatric consultations in a general hospital (Appelbaum, 2007).

If necessary, either antique literature (e.g. Vitruv) or modern literature (e.g. for the reconstruction of the wall paintings) was consulted.

The "spacious times of great Elizabeth" had passed, but the new national spirit born of those times stirred within the English people.
