Psychopathology is the state of the normality of daily life being affected by a deviation from what is considered normal. The most important of these are measurements of statistical deviation from normal, disruption in coping with social relationships, disruption in the perception of reality, and sleeplessness. Their importance is not in that they occur sporadically or rarely, but in their persistence and the diagnosis of psychopathology. With this approach, more average behavior is accepted as ideal. With a more systematized diagnosis, a psychiatric condition, in order to be called pathological, must show deviance from the ideals of feeling, emotion and behavior, it must be related to negative feelings, it must disrupt daily functions, and it must constitute a danger to the persons themselves or to those around them. In the biological approach, psychopathologies are reduced to neurons, neural nets, synaptic pathologies and neurotransmitters. However, the basis of psychopathologies can today also be demonstrated at much deeper levels. When these deep structures are considered, a new viewpoint emerges, which can be called super reductionism or a quantum psychopathological approach. In this article, information on quantum psychopathology, which is still in its infancy, will be reviewed, and psychopathologies will be considered with the somewhat speculative quantum physical approach.
