CFS Newsletter No. 1 - 2013

The Center for Subjectivity Research was established in 2002 as an interdisciplinary "Center of Excellence." In the period 2002-2012 it was funded by the Danish National Research Foundation, with supplementary funding from the University of Copenhagen (Faculty of Humanities, Faculty of Theology, Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences). Currently it is host to a number of externally funded research projects.

UCPH Excellence Programme for Interdisciplinary Research

Dan Zahavi, Josef Parnas and Søren Overgaard, Center for Subjectivity Research have received an 8,4 mill. DKK grant from the UCPHs 2016 funds for research.

The project is called "The disrupted 'we': Shared intentionality and its psychopathological distortions."

The capacity to adopt a we-perspective and create a social reality is fundamental to human social life. This project will investigate the nature of disturbances in the capacity for entering and maintaining a we-perspective in schizophrenia. The investigation will provide new input to theoretical debates about the relation between the first-person perspective, empathy and the we-perspective, and a basis for novel approaches to treatment of schizophrenia.

NEWLY EMPLOYED STAFF

Mads Gram Henriksen from 1 January 2013 as a post.doc.

The aim of Mads' project is to revise and define the concepts of psychosis, delusion, and hallucination from a clinical-phenomenological perspective. Given that psychosis is an etiologically heterogeneous condition, it remains questionable if psychosis really is a unitary phenomenon across the diagnostic categories. This project brackets the question of universality and focuses on schizophrenia. Since schizophrenia is a non-organic, not substance-induced, and non-affective mental disorder, it allows psychosis, delusions, and hallucinations to manifest themselves as lucidly as possible. The project will draw on three main sources of information: 1) philosophical and phenomenological literature; 2) literature from the early German psychopathological tradition; and 3) qualitative-empirical data from in-depth interviews with patients with schizophrenia.
