3 - The Road to the Child

Methods of Examination

"And then one should search ... for connec-
tions, conditions and situations that have acted
at once or slowly, and with which perhaps the
origin of the abnormal deviation may be justi-
fiably linked ... Moreover, it is necessary to
understand why these conditions and situations
have brought about such results in the patient,
when in another person they would occur with-
out the slightest effect; and furthermore, why
they all lead in the case of one person to just
such an abnormal complex, while in another to
a totally different one."

— Pavlov
