Verbal hallucinations, intentionality, and interpersonal experience
Interviewed by Mathieu Frerejouan
phenomenology, intentionality, hallucination, schizophrenia, sense of reality
If the philosophical tradition of phenomenological psychopathology has been renewed these last years, the topic of hallucinations has been often neglected for the benefits of syndromes such as schizophrenia or autism. This omission has been corrected by Matthew Ratcliffe who, after studying depression in his previous work, not only opened the field of phenomenological psychology to hallucinations, but also put forward how hallucinatory experiences can enlighten the structure of human experience as being intrinsically vulnerable and interpersonal.
