Schizophrenia refers to a mental disorder characterized by a breakdown in cognitive functioning and processes responsible for normal thought, emotions and ways of behaving. The outcome of this psychotic breakdown is faulty perception, hallucinations, inappropriate behaviour and delusions. Grand delusion is perhaps one of the more common or reported symptoms of schizophrenics with delusions of persecution or grandeur. In this essay, we compare and contrast psychological and biological explanations of schizophrenia, via a point by point comparison of both psychological and biological explanations of schizophrenia at the same time, while first pointing out similarities in their explanation of psychotic symptoms and thereafter any differences.
