It is, however, beyond any doubt that the clarification of former views, the systematic descriptions, and the theory are the work of Kraepelin. Mixed states belonged to the core of Kraepelin's "manic-depressive insanity" (Angst and Marneros, 2000, Koukopoulos and Koukopoulos 1999, Marneros 1999). However, it can be assumed that their final clinical description, their categorization and the systematic gathering of data on the topic is the common work of both men. 22 A. Marneros and J. Angst In his slim, 63-page monograph Über die Mischzustände des manisch-depressiven Irreseins, Weygandt (1899) gives a very plastic description of mixed states in a style very similar to that of Kraepelin.
