There he established a research program based on Kahlbaum’s proposal for a more exact qualitative clinical approach, and his own innovation: The diagnostic criteria were vague, minimal and wide, including either concepts that no longer exist or sementia are now labeled as personality disorders for example, schizotypal personality disorder.
Kraepelin continued to equate dementia praecox with hebephrenia for the next six years.
