Case histories in contemporary psychology

It has been observed that the great novels are source books for psychologists or that they are case histories. 

What is a case history?

In Western psychology, case histories are defined as follows: “a compilation of information which includes all available data on background, test results, interviews, ratings, disgnoses, etc., concerning an individual subject of a study. The case history method is most frequently utilized… for the practical purpose of diagnosis and prognosis. However, after the study of a number of individual cases, the clinician or sociologist may formulate theoretical principles or generalisations about some aspect of behaviour.
