Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

Contents:
Dialogue between phenomenology and psychiatry has a long history, dating back to Karl Jaspers’ 1912 appropriation of themes in Edmund Husserl’s work. This course explores the historical and ongoing relationships between phenomenology and psychiatry, focusing on how they facilitate mutual illumination. In the process, the course engages with work by historically important thinkers such as Karl Jaspers, Wolfgang Blankenburg, Eugene Minkowski, Ludwig Binswanger, J. H. van den Berg, and R. D. Laing. Some of the seminars address types of experience associated with specific psychiatric diagnoses, such as schizophrenia, major depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder, and/or with specific symptoms, such as hallucinations and delusions. Other seminars consider broader themes, such as bodily experience, interpersonal relations, and the sense of time in psychiatric illness. Throughout the course, there is an emphasis on how one can do phenomenology and make original phenomenological discoveries by studying experiences of psychiatric illness.

Methods:
• focused readings of key articles and book chapters
• individual and group presentations in seminars
• ‘mini-lectures’ by the seminar leader
• detailed critical discussion of texts, themes, concepts and claims
• writing an essay

Aims:
Students will:
• become familiar with a diverse body of work that brings phenomenology and psychiatry into dialogue with each other
• learn how to interpret and critically discuss specific claims regarding the kinds of experience associated with kinds of psychiatric illness
• learn how to pursue original phenomenological research by engaging with first-person accounts of psychiatric illness
• learn how to present philosophical work
• learn how to write an essay in the style of a professional journal article

These are marked * on the reading list and will be made available on-line via ‘moodle’ at least one week in advance of the relevant seminar. You are expected to read all of them. Several other recommended readings will also be posted on-line. You are also encouraged to consult further sources on the reading list, including the ‘general reading’.
