Psychopathology of Time And Body


How does temporal experience shape our sense of the world and of the self? How do unconscious, pre-reflective and conscious disruptions of temporality affect perceptions and agency of people suffering from mental illness? This one-day workshop examines the theme of lived time and lived body in mental disorders from a broadly construed phenomenological perspective. The workshop is a concluding event of the seminar on “Psychopathology of time and body”, which brought together philosophers and mental health practitioners working in the tradition of existential phenomenology.
