Diana's Doctor(s)

Another psychoanalytic invention: multiple personalities - AFIS - French Association for Scientific Information

Simonini (Eco's main character inThe Prague Cemetary) meets "doctors Bourru and Burot" one of whom has a patent named Diana with a dual personality.  She, member of that hated gender and, like himself, perhaps, a multiple personality. becomes an important part of Simonini's delusions and obsessions.

In reality, Bourru and Burot were a single person (lol) Prosper Henry F. Burot Bourro who treated patients with multiple personality disorders.

Unfortunately, i have found no further information about either Burot Bourru or "Diana."

It's all in the punctuation


“Eando Binder” is a pen-name used by two mid-20th-century science fiction
authors, Earl Andrew Binder (1904-1965) and his brother Otto Binder
(1911-1974)…

I'm always amused by things like that.
