Abstract

This book, which comprises four different parts, divided into eighteen chapters, puts forward an analysis drawing both from philosophy and from literary hermeneutics. Its guiding thread are the creative or «poietic» processes through which the «self» forms and transforms itself as a configuration of symbols and a work of language, in the laboratory of (auto)biographic memory and imagination. The book sheds light on the open, exploratory and experimental character of literature in general and of the experiences of writing and narrating in particular. But it also emphasizes the elusive, unstable and perhaps never fully graspable trait of these experiences in a first person perspective. In the book, the processes of subjectivity and identity (personal or collective) are explored and the mechanisms for interpreting life and world are investigated.

Abstract

This work addresses man's current situation in the world, as compared to other historical periods, focusing on the problematic of life and its multiple crossroads which challenge current Philosophy to find a way in both language and poetry to voice the inexpressible and serve as an pathway of survival. What is sought here is a Philosophy accompanying lifeworld, in line with the phenomenological movement and its hermeneutical conversion. Walkers faces, from a philosophical point of view, the serious issues raised by violence, globalization and modern man's solitude.

Abstract

The writing seeks to launch a critical and reformer look at the concepts of madness, mental disorder and mental illness, dominated by the 20th century psychiatry whose thesis is sustained in mechanicism, which defends that mental life can summarize physiology. With the philosopher Georg W. F. Hegel It is shown that madness is not a physiological defect, but a constitutive phase of the dialectical, rational activity of the spirit, whose freedom and infinity to self-conceive is not subject to the laws of physiology. With the phenomenology of Merleau-Ponty, in a different register, but within the theme, we consolidated, now in the 20th century, that neither human consciousness nor human behavior are a series of automatic reactions, typical of causal thinking. We have finally completed these arguments with the critical thinking of a tradition of academic researchers in which Carlos Pires, Peter Breggin, Thomas Szasz or R.D. Laing, who deepened this relationship between philosophy and psychiatry.
