Sample text

In conclusion, phenomenological psychopathology shares a common view on the importance of the epoche´ and phenomenological reduction for the sake of its analysis of psychopathological phenomena. However, under this commonality, there are interesting nuances: Jaspers appears at least partially independent from Husserl’s account, while Binswanger and the majority of those following a Daseins-analytic perspective, although in general clearly indebted to Heidegger’s ideas, on this particular point (phenomenological reduction) follow Husserl’s view and (at least to our knowledge) substantially neglect Heidegger’s alternative account.

Second, we tried to show the main methods and theoretical commitments underlying the phenomenological approach. We stressed that phenomenological psychopathology is not a monolith but a method partly shared by original thinkers holding a family resemblance. Accordingly, not all distinctions and concepts are assumed by all thinkers, and free thinking and possibility to dissent are values that phenomenological psychopathology endorse. On this respect, its approach is very far from some “parochial” approaches pervading many schools of thought in psychiatry and psychology.
