Full-text available
The distinction of „understanding“ and „explaining“, formulated by Karl Jaspers in his „General Psychopathology“, has had a lasting effect on psychiatry. As a result, phenomenological, hermeneutic, or psychodynamic approaches have often been accorded only descriptive or epiphenomenal status, while the actual causes of mental illness have been sough...
Article
The social challenges in autism spectrum disorders (ASD) can present as qualitative differences in interactions that make individuals on the autism spectrum appear less engaged with others. Limited interactional synchrony and other nonverbal movement patterns may contribute to these qualitative differences. This article uses the case of Hans, an ad...

Die Einführung operationalisierter Diagnosesysteme hat zwar zu einer Präzisierung der Diagnostik geführt, jedoch auch zu einem Rückgang psychopathologischer Erfahrung und Intuition. Daher sollten phänomenologische Ansätze der zwischenleiblichen, intuitiven Diagnostik künftig wieder stärker berücksichtigt und in der Ausbildung eingeübt werden. Der A...

Phenomenological approaches suggest that the bodily presence of others has a profound influence on the experience of social spaces. This intimate relationship is particularly evident in mental disorders. Investigations into the nature of intersubjectivity in various pathologies indicate that modifications to the capacity for social perception play...

Zusammenfassung „Nichts ist, wie es scheint“, „nichts geschieht zufällig“, und „alles ist miteinander verbunden“ – diese drei Grundannahmen charakterisieren Verschwörungstheorien unterschiedlicher Provenienz. Damit zeigen sie eine deutliche Parallelität zur Struktur von paranoidem Bedeutungserleben und Wahn. Dem stehen jedoch wichtige Unterschiede...

Motor abnormalities occur in the majority of persons with schizophrenia but are generally neglected in clinical care. Psychiatric diagnostics fail to include quantifiable motor variables and few assessment tools examine full-body movement. We assessed full-body movement during gait of 20 patients and 20 controls with motion capture technology, symp...

Anorexia nervosa is often regarded primarily as a disorder of the body image, with affected individuals submitting themselves to the dictate of a predominant model of slenderness. However, even though this frequently functions as a gateway to the disorder, the paper intends to show that the actual conflict in anorexia consists in a fundamental alie...

In this article, we present holistic and person-centered perspectives in psychiatry, with the aim of better understanding what a focus on personhood might really mean and what clinical implications it might have. We first introduce classical and philosophical concepts of personhood, in order to then outline person-centered approaches in psychiatry,...

Background: Individuals on the autism spectrum are often described as having atypical social interactions. Ideally, interactional synchrony helps any interaction flow smoothly with each individual responding verbally, non-verbally, and/or emotionally within a short timeframe. Differences in interactional synchrony may impact how individuals on the...

With the progress of artificial intelligence, the digitalization of the lifeworld, and the reduction of the mind to neuronal processes, the human being appears more and more as a product of data and algorithms. Thus, we conceive ourselves "in the image of our machines," and conversely, we elevate our machines and our brains to new subjects. At the...

While linear time results from the measurement of physical events, the temporality of life is characterized by cyclical processes, which also manifest themselves in bodily experience. This applies for the periodicity of heartbeat, respiration, sleep–wake cycle, or circadian hormone secretion, among others. Cyclical repetitions are also found in the...

The advances in artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics are increasingly calling into question the distinction between the simulation and reality of the human person. On the one hand, they suggest a computeromorphic understanding of human intelligence, and on the other, an anthropomorphic view of AI systems. In other words: we increasingly view o...

According to transhumanists, the human being in its current shape is fundamentally imperfect. Consequently, they propagate possibilities of enhancing and reshaping one’s body, culminating in the idea of virtual immortality, i.e., transferring one’s mind as software onto more durable substrates (“mind uploading”). Such ideas are based on a blatant m...

From a neuro-constructivistic point of view, the brain creates an internal simulation of the external world which appears as the phenomenal world in consciousness. This view presupposes in particular that the subjective body and the organic or objective body belong to two fundamentally different worlds, the mental and the physical. The spatiality o...

Since its development around 1800, psychiatry has been moving between the poles of the sciences and the humanities, being directed toward subjective experience on the one hand and toward the neural substrate on the other hand. Today, this dualism seems to be overcome by a naturalism which identifies subjective experience with neural processes—accor...

Theories of personal identity in the tradition of John Locke emphasize the importance of psychological continuity and the abilities to think, to remember and to make rational choices as basic criteria for personhood. As a consequence, persons with severe dementia are threatened to lose the status of persons. Such concepts, however, are situated wit...

Digitalization and artificial intelligence hold the prospect of new procedures for psychiatry. Machine learning techniques combined with big data should enable algorithmized diagnostics, prediction and therapy that are superior to clinical observation and interaction in terms of accuracy and efficiency. This development converges with the search fo...

Borderline personality disorder (BPD) is characterized by severe disturbances in a subject’s sense of identity. Persons with BPD suffer from recurrent feelings of emptiness, a lack of self-feeling, and painful incoherence, especially regarding their own desires, how they see and feel about others, their life goals, or the roles to which they commit...

According to current representationalist concepts, delusion is considered the result of faulty information processing or incorrect inference about external reality. In contrast, the paper develops a concept of delusion as a disturbance of the enactive and intersubjective constitution of a shared reality. A foundation of this concept is provided by...

Since the emergence of the concept of value in philosophical thought during the 19th century, the concept has swayed between an exclusively subjective preference and an objective or even Platonic notion of validity which is potentially invariant across cultures or times.

Since Minkowski, von Gebsattel, Straus, and Tellenbach, temporality has been a major subject of phenomenological psychiatry. Drawing on philosophical concepts of Bergson, Husserl, and Heidegger, these authors have analyzed psychopathological deviations of time-experience mainly from an individual point of view, for example, as a slowing- down or in...

There is a conspicuous tendency of humans to experience empathy and sympathy pref¬er-entially towards members of their own group, whereas empathetic feelings towards out-group members or strangers are often reduced or even missing. This may culminate in a “dissociation of empathy”: A historical example are the cases of Nazi perpetrators who behaved...

Emotionen gehören zu den wohl komplexesten Phänomenen der menschlichen Psyche.

In Philosophie und Sozialwissenschaften wird oft ein Zusammenhang zwischen der gegenwärtigen Gesellschaftsform und psychischen Krankheiten postuliert.

Dennoch kommt im Begriff der E...

Background. We have diagnosed and treated schizophrenia for over a century but have not come very far in alleviating its burden [see e.g. 1]. This may be due to a simple, but essential aspect, widely ignored in conventional diagnostics, treatment and research: the moving body [2]. Evidently, there is no mental illness that does not affect the (movi...

This chapter discusses the question of temporality from a phenomenological point of view, in which the experience of lived time is regarded as a core feature of various manifestations of mental illness.

Embodiment has become a major area of interest in many academic fields (e.g., phenomenology and cognitive sciences).

Present day neuroscience places the brain at the center of study. But what if researchers viewed the brain not as the foundation of life, rather as a mediating organ? Ecology of the Brain addresses this very question. It considers the human body as a collective, a living being which uses the brain to mediate interactions. Those interactions may b...

‘Cosmos in the head’ contains a criticism of the neuroconstructivist epistemology, according to which phenomenal reality is to be understood as an internal modelling of the outer world in the brain. As it turns out, the idealistic theory of representation is still the basis of this conception. The criticism emphasizes, in contrast, the enactive cha...

‘The brain as an organ of the person’ examines the socially and culturally scaffolded development of the human brain, especially in early childhood. Beginning with early intersubjectivity and intercorporeality in the mother–child relationship, it first focuses on interactive forms of implicit memory. As a neurological basis of this development, the...

‘Foundations: subjectivity and life’ develops the concept of embodied subjectivity, initially grounded in the phenomenology of bodily existence. A central concept for the investigation is the dual aspect of the living person as a dialectical unity of the subjective body and the physical body.

‘The brain as the subject’s heir?’ critiques the claims according to which subjectivity is to be regarded as an epiphenomenon of neuronal processes and thus one’s experience of agency and freedom of choice should be seen as an illusion. First it is shown that the subjectivity of ‘experiential facts’ cannot be reduced to objective or physical facts...

‘The brain as an organ of the living being’ first presents the brain as the organ of vital regulation, which is connected to the organism through various feedback loops. This constant resonance between brainstem and organism is the basis of a background ‘ feeling of being alive ’ as the foundation of all conscious experience. Second, the relations...

‘The concept of dual aspectivity’ presents a renewed philosophical examination of the fundamental concept presented in Chapter 3.

Current phenomenological approaches consider schizophrenia as a fundamental disturbance of the embodied self, or a disembodiment. This includes (1) a weakening of the basic sense of self, (2) a disruption of implicit bodily functioning, and (3) a disconnection from the inter-corporeality with others. As a result of this disembodiment, the pre-refle...

The overall goals of the project are (1) to find empirical evidence/correlates for the theoretical concept of disembodiment, (2) to propose quantitative socio-motor markers of schizophrenic disembodiment and (3) with this to establish tools, which could help to objectively diagnose a motor dimension in schizophrenia, to discriminate the illness from other psychiatric disorders, and ideally to predict it before its onset. Achievement of these goals will eventually support a comprehensive treatment of symptoms.
