Sample text

D. 2 The main method of this school is empathy, placing oneself in the position of the other person. As in the psychoanalytic school, from which some of the existentialists derived, the therapist begins with a neutral listening to the patient, but the existential therapist does not, as in psychoanalysis, later try to organize what is learned into a theory. The therapist’s role is to simply understand the patient, not theorize about him. In fact, the patient-treater difference is annulled; the goal of treatment is a coming together wherein the patient (to use an objective-descriptive term) moves toward the therapist and the therapist moves toward the patient.

These questions all share one essential core: is there something different about experiencing a thing (color, pain, being a bat) above and beyond our scientific understanding of the mechanisms of that thing (the neurobiology of color, pain, being a bat)? In other words, returning to older philosophical language, is there something subjective about mental experiences that is different from the objective bases of those experiences? And is this subjective aspect ineffable? That is, is it by definition nonunderstandable in an objective scientific manner?

This is so because otherwise psychiatry, like any other scientific discipline, would operate with uninvestigated assumptions and logically immature arguments. Psychiatry in particular runs this risk because its subject matter, the mind, is culturally imbued with many assumptions and beliefs, some of which may be false. For instance, many persons believe mental phenomena are separate from the body, and they thus might be inclined toward psychotherapy, as opposed to biological, treatments for various conditions.
