Philippe Pinel (1745-1826) was a French clinician and doctor renowned as the precursor of psychiatry.
He is also well-known for his "Nosographie philosophique", first published in 1798, in which he classified diseases into five major groups (fevers, phlegmasias, hemorrhages, neuroses and lymphatic diseases) whith the symptoms and injuries caused.
This book quickly became a reference and was very successful as soon as it was published.
