Phenomenology and the Social Context of Psychiatry : Social Relations, Psychopathology, and Husserl's Philosophy Hardback

Edited by Magnus (Associate Professor Faculty of Health and Society, Malmoe University, Sweden) Englander

Part of the Bloomsbury Studies in Continental Philosophy series

Description

Exploring phenomenological philosophy as it relates to psychiatry and the social world, this book establishes a common language between psychiatrists, anti-psychiatrists, psychologists and social workers. Phenomenology and the Social Context of Psychiatry is an inter-disciplinary work by phenomenological philosophers, psychiatrists, and psychologists to discover the essence and foundations of social psychiatry.

Using the phenomenology of Husserl as a point of departure, the meanings of empathy, interpersonal understanding, we-intentionality, ethics, citizenship and social inclusion are investigated in relation to psychopathology, nosology, and clinical research.

This work, drawing upon the rich classical and contemporary phenomenological tradition, touching on a broad range of thinkers such as Deleuze, Levinas, and R.D.

Laing, also explicates how phenomenology is a method capable of capturing the human condition and its intricate relation to the social world and mental illness
