  • Cosmos and History: 'He had also coined the concept of a “psychoterratic” illness, one in which psychological symptoms are induced by land sickness: “the people of concern are still ‘at home’, but experience a ‘homesickness’ similar to that caused by nostalgia.

The word ‘solace’ relates to both psychological and physical contexts.”'
