king of Siam

Another great Mises quote:

“If a man imagines himself to be the king of Siam, the first thing which the psychiatrist has to establish is whether or not he really is what he believes himself to be. Only if this question is answered in the negative can the man be considered insane.”

(Human Action, c15, s12)
