This essay examines the theme of incomprehensibility on the basis of pathography conducted by Jaspers on Strindberg. Starting from a more general consideration on the Jaspersian philosophy of existence, we analyzed the relationship determined by Jaspers between the limits of understanding and the assumption concerning the differences between the psychological process and development of a personality. The impossibility, recognized by Jaspers, of a genetic understanding of the schizophrenic delusion compels us in Strindberg’s pathography to value judgments that restrict the scientific approach of the same pathography. This essay also draws a comparison between the Jaspersian attempt of a pathographic study and the phenomenological analysis of delusion performed by Binswanger, with reference to Strindberg, through to the fundamentals of the Husserlian transcendental phenomenology.

Abstract

This essay examines the theme of incomprehensibility on the basis of pathography conducted by Jaspers on Strindberg. Starting from a more general consideration on the Jaspersian philosophy of existence, we analyzed the relationship determined by Jaspers between the limits of understanding and the assumption concerning the differences between the psychological process and development of a personality. The impossibility, recognized by Jaspers, of a genetic understanding of the schizophrenic delusion compels us in Strindberg’s pathography to value judgments that restrict the scientific approach of the same pathography. This essay also draws a comparison between the Jaspersian attempt of a pathographic study and the phenomenological analysis of delusion performed by Binswanger, with reference to Strindberg, through to the fundamentals of the Husserlian transcendental phenomenology.
