The Case of Daniel Paul Schreber: Paranoid Schizophrenia documents the rise and fall of Daniel Schreber, from his appointing to the Supreme Court of judges to his long-term commitment to the psychiatric unit.
The bizarre thoughts and delusions Schreber would experience may have been the result of the authoritarian parenting style of his father, Dr. Schreber. As a patient of Sigmund Freud, Freud would use Schreber's memoirs in formation of his psychoanalytic theory. The painful end to Daniel Schreber's life would result in spending 12 of his final 17 years confined to the hospital's psychiatric unit.
