Kurt Goldstein on Conduction Aphasia

Kurt Goldstein (1878-1965)

German

Studied with Wernicke

Influenced by Gestalt psychology (Koffka 1935)

Adopted a “holistic” approach

Became the best-known spokesman for this approach

Important publication in 1948

Criticized the Wernicke-Lichtheim view of conduction aphasia

Not the arcuate fasciculus but a central area

Proposed the term ‘Central Aphasia’

Now we see that there are really three kinds of conduction aphasia
