This paper describes basic principles of systematics for psychiatric disorders such as the categorical and dimensional approach. It summarises validity aspects of the traditional psychiatric nosology and syndromatology. The importance and limitations of the dichotomy of schizophrenia and affective disorders, first suggested by Kraepelin, is reviewed in the light of results from modern research in the field of classification, follow-up and neurobiological studies, especially neurochemical…

Psychopathological assessment of schizophrenia: Relevance for classification
TLDR
Recent developments in the primary assessment methods within clinical psychiatry, which are based in phenomenological psychopathology, are reviewed as nosotaxies that are still embedded in clinical description.
Two subgroups of schizophrenia identified by systematic cognitive neuropsychiatric mapping
TLDR
The patterns of cognitive dysfunctions and neurological developmental anomalies equally indicate that there may be hemispherical differences between the patients belonging to the different clusters, and an explorative fuzzy cluster analysis revealed two subgroups that could be distinguished from each other on symptomatological, cognitive and neurological levels.
Is schizophrenia still one entity with similar symptomatic patterns, neurobiological characteristics, and treatment perspectives?

TLDR
The paper by Schmidt et al. in this issue reports on a 12-month trial of assertive community treatment and underlines the need for a differentiated psychometric assessment of negative symptoms that offers the possibility to evaluate subdimensions of the total score.

TLDR
A comparison of the main features of the categorical and dimensional concepts of psychiatric diagnosis has been made and it is shown that the clinical utility ofThe categorical concept over-rates the dimensional model, whereas the dimensional concept provides more information about the respective individual.

TLDR
The DSM-IV diagnostic system was largely preserved, although some changes were made, primarily in the field of affective disorder and in several criteria sets, and the new transnosological specifiers, severity assessments and cross-cutting dimensional assessments may help to individualise treatment.
Classification Systems of Mental Disorders: Where Did We Go Wrong?
TLDR
Most support is found for an approach that would start de novo with a new system, primarily based on neurobiological parameters, but such an approach does not appear to be an ideal solution, given the gap between clinical phenomenology and neuroscience-related findings.
Is there a need for a new psychiatric classification at the current state of knowledge?

TLDR
A switch to a purely symptom-oriented dimensional approach would be the most radical development and could avoid a lot of theoretical pre-assumptions about causal hypotheses, which are still associated with ICD-10 and DSM-IV (although this classification system pretends to be nearly theoretical and calls for a primary syndromal approach).

Several methodological issues of classification of psychiatric disorders are addressed and the advantages and disadvantages of the syndromatological and nosological classifications are broadly described.

TLDR
A hypothetical conceptual approach to the classification of psychoses is proposed that has been greatly informed by the organizing principle underlying the periodic table of the elements, and is distinct from the ‘disease’ model of psychiatric classification.

Some general aspects of the long-term course and outcome of schizophrenic psychoses and the problem of relapses and relapse prevention will be discussed.
Nosological Tunnel Vision in Biological Psychiatry
TLDR
Signs of diminished dopamine, serotonine, and noradrenaline metabolism, as have been found in psychiatric disorders, are not disorder-specific, but rather are related to psychopathological dimensions; i.e., hypoactivity/inertia; increased aggression/anxiety and anhedonia.

The concept of a "Universal genesis of psychoses" has been worked on by the author for about 12 years. It is mostly biologically orientated and deals with the development, classification and therapy
Biological, life course, and cross-cultural studies all point toward the value of dimensional and developmental ratings in the classification of psychosis.
TLDR
Whether more progress would be achieved in DSM-V by abandoning the familiar categorical system and instead moving to a dimensional system which rates both developmental impairment and symptom factor scores is discussed.

The authors describe the extensive, collaboration between the American Psychiatric Association and the World Health Organization to assess the state of psychiatric science currently available and to identify research needed to further inform DSM-V and ICD-11, and future revisions of these classifications.
