In the more recent classifications of the psychoneuroses there is a marked trend towards simplification. An attempt is made to class the psychoneuroses as prepsychotic anxiety states. While we are frequently forced to recognize this in our statistical records, there are many cases in which the clinical syndrome does not justify such a classification. The classification which is considered in this discussion is that adopted by the Committee on Statistics of the American Psychiatric Association, and the National Committee for Mental Hygiene in 1934. Accordingly, under this heading are placed disorders of psychogenic origin, or without clearly defined tangible cause
