What is MADMAN?

An insane person, particularly one suffering from mania in any of its forms. Said to be inapplicable to idiots (Com. v. Haskell, 2 Brewst. [Pa.] 407); but it is not a technical term either of medicine or the law, aud is incapable of being applied with scientific precision. See INSANITY.
