Proceedings of the Spring School 2019, “Psychiatry and Phenomenology” (June 2019)

Guest Editors

  • Elisabetta Lalumera (University of Milano-Bicocca)
  • Marta Boniardi (Vita-Salute San Raffaele University, Milan)

As a method for thinking how things are present to us, independently of their reality, phenomenology has always been an ally to psychiatry, as a framework for understanding or defining abnormal mental experiences and pathologies. In the past, the work of authors such as Karl Jaspers, Eugène Minkowski and Ludwig Binswanger provided the very foundations of the discipline in Europe. In recent years, the phenomenological approach to psychopathology has regained center stage in philosophy and in scientific psychiatric research both in Europe and the Anglo-american community, for it provides an alternative to, or a complement for, physicalistic and third-person perspective accounts of mental disorders. Contemporary research topics in phenomenological psychiatry include, among others, accounts of schizophrenia, depression, dementia, identity disorders, the embodied dimensions of experience, and the relation between first-person perspectives and neuroscientific evidence. The Spring School “Psychiatry and Phenomenology” will feature, as invited speakers, leading philosophers and psychiatrists working within the phenomenological approach. We also invite submissions by graduate and PhD students, postdocs and experienced researchers on any topic related with the School main theme
