Lost in Dialogue

Anthropology, Psychopathology, and Care

Giovanni Stanghellini

International Perspectives in Philosophy and Psychiatry

  • Brings together philosophy and clinical practice to consider three fundamental questions - 'What is a human being?', 'What is mental disorder?', and 'What is care?'
  • Provides a method to approximate the Other, to understand its experiences, actions and in general the world it lives in. It describes the steps to achieve this knowledge of the Other's world
  • Presents an account of care as the kind of dialogic practice that can be derived from philosophical and psychopathological premises
