Empathy and Indifference: Philosophical Reflections on Schizophrenia

Ignace Haaz: Empathy and Indifference: Philosophical Reflections on Schizophrenia

Author: Ignace Haaz

ISBN: 978-2-88931-345-7
Series number: Globethics.net Philosophy No. 2
Publication: 2020

The professional application of ethics often lacks the necessary conceptual tools to construct adequate theoretical foundations that can be used for practical enterprise.
This book focuses on an anthropological approach to mental illness, describing how schizophrenia can distort one's experience of empathy and of the presence in the world through pathological indifference. It describes factual and phenomenological perspectives on a case of schizophrenia, based on the method of Eugène Minkowski.
