Lost in Dialogue

Anthropology, Psychopathology, and Care

Giovanni Stanghellini

International Perspectives in Philosophy and Psychiatry

In this book Stanghellini argues that to be human means to be in dialogue with alterity, that mental pathology is the outcome of a crisis of one's dialogue with alterity, and that care is a method wherein dialogues take place whose aim is to re-enact interrupted dialogue with alterity within oneself and with the external world.
