The methodological approach employed in the second part of the study is one of comparing the psychological insights of two scholars of mysticism, William James and Evelyn Underhill, with a theory of personality development. The two theorists, William James and Evelyn Underhill, who have set the agenda for the psychological study of mysticism, provide different but complementary psychological analyses of the inner discord found in some mystics. James considers what he refers to as the divided self from the perspective of religious experience in general. The value of this approach is that it makes it possible to see the relationship between the mystical struggle and other forms of religious struggle. While there is an implicit process of development in James' exposition, Underhill describes an explicit model of mystical stages and locates the mystical struggle within the beginning stages. In addition Underhill provides an examination of the mystical response to the experience of inner division, ., the disciplines of asceticism and meditation.
MAOIs started off due to the serendipitous discovery that iproniazid was a potent MAO inhibitor (MAOI).  Originally intended for the treatment of tuberculosis, in 1952, iproniazid's antidepressant properties were discovered when researchers noted that the depressed patients given iproniazid experienced a relief of their depression. Subsequent in vitro work led to the discovery that it inhibited MAO and eventually to the monoamine theory of depression . MAOIs became widely used as antidepressants in the early 1950s. The discovery of the 2 isoenzymes of MAO has led to the development of selective MAOIs that may have a more favorable side-effect profile.
