Abstract

Kipling was perhaps a little premature, for the twain have met in more recent times with the Judgment Seat still in the offing, and nowhere is this more apparent than in the case of the exotic syndrome stripped of its mystique under the penetrating onslaught of modern behavioural science. Thus we find such entities as latah, koro, hsieh-ping, imu, possession syndromes, and mass hysteria with a variety of romantic-sounding names (for example, “Vailala madness” and “mushroom madness”) coming down to earth with nosological statuses more in keeping with known psychiatric concepts. It is proposed here to give an account of the Papua and New Guinea version of the amok syndrome which to date has received little medical attention, and to produce evidence to support a sociopsychodynamic explanation of the condition.
