Richard Freiherr von Krafft-Ebing

Redirected from Richard von Krafft-Ebbing

Richard Freiherr von Krafft-Ebing (August 4, 1840- December 22, 1902) was a German psychiatrist and author of Psychopathia Sexualis (1886), a famous study of sexual perversity.

It should be noted that some practices considered as pathological by Krafft-Ebing, such as homosexuality, are no longer considered as such by modern psychiatrists.
