Phenomenology, Psychiatry and the Sense of Reality

Matthew Ratcliffe

International Perspectives in Philosophy and Psychiatry

  • Offers a phenomenological framework that can be adopted to aid interpretation of a range of anomalous experiences in psychiatric illness
  • Emphasizes how phenomenology and psychiatry can interact in a way that is mutually beneficial
