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.
