The mask of sanity : an attempt to clarify some issues about the so-called psychopathic personality by Hervey M Cleckley( Book )

58 editions published between 1946 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,033 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

2015 Reprint of 1950 Edition. Full facsimile of the original edition. Not reproduced with Optical Recognition Software. This classic account of the Psychopathic Personality was first published in 1941. We reprint herein the expanded Second Edition of 1950. Cleckley describes clinical interviews with patients in a locked institution. The text is considered to be a seminal work and the most influential clinical description of psychopathology in the twentieth century. The basic elements of psychopathology outlined by Cleckley are still relevant today. The title refers to the normal "mask" that conceals the mental disorder of the psychopathic person according to Cleckley's conceptualization. Cleckley describes the psychopathic person as outwardly a perfect mimic of a normally functioning person, able to mask or disguise the fundamental lack of internal personality structure, an internal chaos that results in repeatedly purposeful destructive behavior, often more self-destructive than destructive to others. Despite the seemingly sincere, intelligent, even charming external presentation, internally the psychopathic person does not have the ability to experience genuine emotions. Cleckley questions whether this mask of sanity is voluntarily assumed to intentionally hide the lack of internal structure, but concludes it hides a serious, but yet imprecisely unidentified, semantic neuropsychiatric defect

The mask of sanity an attempt to clarify some issues about the so-called psychopathic personality by Hervey M Cleckley( )

3 editions published in 1955 in English and Undetermined and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since the last edition of this book was prepared, many additional psychopaths have been observed pursuing their vivid patterns of maladjustment. A few encouraging reports of successful therapeutic measures have emerged. The number of patients concerned is, however, too small to furnish substantial evidence that a regularly effective means of dealing with the psychopath's disorder has been discovered. It is my increasingly strong belief that the immediate and practical goal of all concerned with this problem should be to promote a general understanding that these people have a social disability that is real and extremely serious. Adequate means must be provided to control legally these severely disordered patients like those long ago provided, and available today, for far less incompetent patients of other types. Even if a truly curative therapy is never devised, perhaps half the damage, crime, waste, useless disorder, and sorrow caused now by psychopaths could be eliminated by a reasonably wise use of such legal measures for control. In the present revision I have attempted to make clearer my concepts of the psychopath's confusing and paradoxical disorder. It is not easy to convey this concept, that of a biologic organism outwardly intact, showing excellent peripheral function, but centrally deficient or disabled in such a way that abilities, excellent at the only levels where we can formally test them, cannot be utilized consistently for sane purposes or prevented from regularly working toward self-destructive and other seriously pathologic results. Impressed by its effectiveness as used by Henry Head to distinguish a complex and deep type of aphasia, I chose the term semantic to indicate my concept of a personality disorder which appears to have, at least hypothetically, some important similarities"--Preface.
