Sample text

Binswanger is also aware that the primary point of departure of psychiatric inquiry is the arlarming otherness manifested in the madman’s behavior. 20 Unlike the lay public, the psychiatrist must not content himself with a mere statement of the nonsensicality of a certain behavior but must seek to understand it. His task is to penetrate into the welter of unclear motives and obscure intentions, trying to find his way around it and to discover the hidden sense of the pathological experience. In order for that to be accomplished, psychiatry must resist the temptation to reduce the madman’s otherness to the mere object of scientific inquiry.

Although behavior that defies the commonly shared semantic contexts is assumed to be deranged in a given situation, it could nevertheless seem perfectly normal in a different social situation or cultural context. What is accepted as a common or even desired way of behavior in one cultural environment is considered unacceptable in another. Whereas in the secular society, messianic visions, conversations with angels or deep dejection arising from the awareness of one’s sinfulness are regarded as expressions of religious derangement, in a religious community these can be assigned the highest value.

Only when pathological anatomy assumes the pivotal position within medical knowledge can medicine arrive at an understanding of a living organism, its development, aging and death. Rather than a classificatory table of diseases, what should henceforth be the focal point of medical interest is to be found in the various ways in which an ill organism resists or succumbs to pathological decomposition.
