Abstract: This thesis exposes ambivalences in Dutch approaches to psychiatric practice and discourse in the late colonial state of the Netherlands Indies. In addition to historical studies on psychoanalytic definitions of the normal Javanese psyche and subaltern resistance in the colony, this thesis also elaborates on the actual methods of diagnosis and treatment that were offered, subsequently exposing a syntheses between European and Javanese healing traditions.
