Authors: Park SC, Kim YK Abstract Because the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 4th edition (DSM-IV) was mainly influenced by the neo-Kraepelinian approach, its categorical approach to defining mental disorders has been criticized from the viewpoint of etiological neutrality. In the context of bridging the gap between "presumed etiologies-based symptomatology" and "identifiable pathophysiological etiologies," the content in 5th edition, the DSM-5, has been revised to incorporate a combination of categorical and dimensional approaches.
