In this paper, the authors focused on the increasingly growing understanding that the notion of categorical (discrete) mental disorders adopted in the DSM-III, DSM-IV and even in DSM-5 is far removed from the biological reality of the brain. Convergent evidence suggests that the categorical model of the DSM is a poor fit to the inherent structure of psychopathology.

This conceptual paper, based on the Wittgenstein's Tractatus (that assesses the syntactic relationships between language and world), and Perlovsky's joint language-cognitive computational model (that assesses the semantic relationships between emotions and “knowledge instinct”), puts foundations for the neural correlates of syntax and semantics in the human brain through the topological approach based on the Borsuk-Ulam and the Brouwer fixed-point theorems.
