Scope and content

File consists of handwritten and typed notes presumably created by Nouwen in preparation of his dissertation [De betekenis van Anton T. Boisen's acute psychose in verband met zijn vraag naar de verhouding tussen geestesziekte en religieuze bekering [The significance of Anton T. Boisen's acute psychosis related to his question about the relationship between mental illness and religious conversion], as well as typed reading notes on Boisen and a document by Dr. J.J.G. Prick and Calon on intelligence and dementia. File includes a note from Prick regarding Jung. This note was possibly from a conversation or a class with Prick. Deals with a thesis proposal [dated 1951 but this cannot be correct Nouwen was in seminary at the time]. File also contains reading notes of "Een schets van intelligentie en dementie" by Prick and Calon, with notes of other books, dated February 8, 1971.
