(p.iii) Schreber’s Law

Peter Goodrich

Edinburgh University Press

Schreber first fell ill after failing to escape from law. He stood for election to the Reichstag but lost ignominiously at the polls. He had to return to law and for the rest of his life suffered from that restraint. Memoirs of My Nervous Illness is a text about and against law, the cry of the transitional against the rigidity of legal classifications. That aspect of Schreber’s case has been suppressed and to add insult to injury the translators of his magnum opus even manage to excise his legal qualifications and the juridical subtitle of the work.
