Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

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 will explore the historical and ongoing relationships between phenomenology and psychiatry, focusing on how they facilitate mutual illumination. In the process, we will engage with the writings of 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 will address the kinds 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 will consider broader themes, such as bodily experience, interpersonal relations, and the sense of time in psychiatric illness. Throughout the course, there will be an emphasis on how one can do phenomenology and make original phenomenological discoveries by studying experiences of psychiatric illness.
