On Hysterical Misreading
 In that wide domain of psychopathic inferiority from which science has marked off the clinical pictures of epilepsy, hysteria, and neurasthenia, we find scattered observations on certain rare states of consciousness as to whose meaning the authors are not yet agreed. These observations crop up sporadically in the literature on narcolepsy, lethargy, automatisme ambulatoire, periodic amnesia, double consciousness, somnambulism, pathological dreaminess, pathological lying, etc.
 The above-mentioned states are sometimes attributed to epilepsy, sometimes to hysteria, sometimes to exhaustion of the nervous system?neurasthenia?and sometimes they may even be accorded the dignity of a disease sui generis. The patients concerned occasionally go through the whole gamut of diagnoses from epilepsy to hysteria and simulated insanity.
