Charcot in Morocco is the first-ever publication of Dr. Jean-Martin Charcot's travel diary of his 1887 trip to Morocco. Considered the father of neuropathology, Charcot (1825-1893) is a seminal character in the history of neurology and psychology. His Moroccan travel diary includes his "objective" observations of the local Jewish community, which only fortified his assumptions about the relationship between race and neuropathology. These became a conspicuous feature of his ideas about the hereditary origins of nervous ailments. His ideas - taught as doctrine to a vast audience, including a young Sigmund Freud - reveal the convergence of clinical observation and European anti-Semitism at the end of the nineteenth century. Including an enlightening critical introduction by renowned Charcot expert Toby Gelfand, Charcot in Morocco provides new insights into the personality of this influential figure and his perspectives on the "Orient" and its inhabitants.
