"Although he is properly considered one of the founders of psychiatry, Pinel's contemporaries regarded him as a master of internal medicine, a reputation based upon the authoritative classification of diseases he set out in his Nosographie philosophique, published in 1798. . .Pinel thus divided diseases into five classes--fevers, phlegmasias, hemorrhages, neuroses, and diseases caused by organic lesions" (D.S.B. 10: 612).
