    The Roots of Psychopathological Understanding: Karl Jaspers' Verstehen and the Influence of Moritz Geiger's Empathy.Massimiliano Aragona - 2016 - Dialogues in Philosophy, Mental and Neuro Sciences 9 (2):36-42.
    This paper presents the main contents of Geiger’s 1910 lecture on empathy and focuses on its possible influence on Jaspers’ General Psychopathology. In particular, some key methodological distinctions traced by Jaspers are compared to Geiger’s similar concepts. Geiger’s role in shaping Jaspers’ concept of understanding is still neglected and it is time to recognize it. In particular, Geiger’s distinction between the direct empathy for the other’s expressions at one side, and the ‘reliving after the event’ of the ‘inner correlation of (...)

    Biographies of Asylum in Italy: Body, Illness and Rights.Rosaria Gatta & Maria Concetta Segneri - 2016 - Dialogues in Philosophy, Mental and Neuro Sciences 9 (2):43-51.
    This paper aims to shed light on clinical-anthropological experience gained at Rome’s INMP during the treatment of forced migrants. The expressions of distress exhibited by these people can frequently be attributed to the difficult conditions of reception they are exposed to in Italy or to episodes of violence in their countries of origin or during their journey through transit countries. For the asylum seeker the clinical setting can become a space that recognises his subjectivity during the process of recognition of (...)

    A Short Comment on the "Defence of Chalmers" by Hane Htut Maung.Jakob Korf - 2016 - Dialogues in Philosophy, Mental and Neuro Sciences 9 (2):69-69.
    The last sentence of my article on the neurobiological context of qualia is: “Future neurobiological approaches might identify the neuronal processes involved in qualia and how they are involved, but it seems illusory to us [.. to me] to explain the individual quale”. Accordingly I do agree with Maung that the paper does not solve the “hard problem of Chalmers”. Instead, my article approaches it as a neurobiological problem, not as a philosophical issue. M.

    La Folie À Deux.Ernest Charles Laségue & Jules Falret - 2016 - Dialogues in Philosophy, Mental and Neuro Sciences 9 (2):62-68.
    Clinical cases of shared delusion are presented and theoretically discussed for the first time. First, it is clearly stated that usually madness is not contagious, so the reasons explaining cases of interpersonal communication deserve thorough analysis. The authors describe the communication from, respectively, an adult to a child, an adult to an older person, and an older person to an adult. In all cases there are basic commonalities, i.e. the active person is really delusional but his/her delusion is plausible, otherwise (...)

    Two Concepts of the Mental: A Comment on Korf's Reply.Maun Hane Htut - 2016 - Dialogues in Philosophy, Mental and Neuro Sciences 9 (2):70-71.
    I am grateful to Jakob Korf for his reply to my comment on his “Qualia in a Contemporary Neurobiological Perspective”. I appreciate that Korf’s intention is to approach the issue from the perspective of neuroscience, rather than philosophy of mind, and I suspect that our dialogue may have partly been at cross purposes. Korf concedes that he does not resolve the “hard problem” of Chalmers. This is a reasonable concession and entirely appropriate for his aim. However, to mitigate the potential (...)

    Psychopathology, Body Uneasiness and Self-Identity in Patients with Non-BED Obesity Compared to Healthy Controls.Anna Maria Petta, Massimiliano Aragona, Pietro Zingaretti, Cristina Ottaviani, Gabriella Antonucci, Antonio Sarnicola & Grazia Fernanda Spitoni - 2016 - Dialogues in Philosophy, Mental and Neuro Sciences 9 (2):52-61.
    Introduction: Obesity represents a major public health problem associated with medical and psychological impairment. Obesity is frequently studied with Binge Eating Disorder comorbidity. Less evidence is available for non-BED obesity, in spite of its correlation with psychological impairment and body image disturbance. In this study, we explored psychopathological features, eating behaviors, body image disturbance and self-identity impairment in patients with obesity and a control group. In patients, we also studied the relation between specific eating/body features and psychopathological symptoms. Finally, we (...)

    Present and Future Trajectories Towards a Possible Valid and Useful Diagnosis of ADHD.Piero De Rossi - 2016 - Dialogues in Philosophy, Mental and Neuro Sciences 9 (1):34-35.
    To date, diagnosing Attention Defi cit Hyperactivity Disorder remains indeed one of the most controversial issues in contemporary psychiatry and behavioural sciences. Most of the conceptual problems regarding the validity of this diagnostic category arise from the heterogeneity of syndromal pictures and the high rate of comorbidity observed in subjects diagnosed with ADHD at all stages of the longitudinal course of the disorder. In this regard, DSM 5 increased complexity by allowing a diagnosis of comorbidity between ADHD and autism spectrum (...)

    Phenomenology of Emotions with Special Reference to Dysphoria.Otto Doerr-Zegers & Héctor Pelegrina-Cetrán - 2016 - Dialogues in Philosophy, Mental and Neuro Sciences 9 (1):1-9.
    Dysphoria is a complex phenomenon which must be defi ned in the framework of different forms of affections. It belongs to the broader field of emotions, which are characterized by some essential features: i.e. movement, passiveness, tran-sitoriness, and reference to the others. All these four essential features of emotion are specifi cally altered in depression, whose phenomenology is presented in a clinical case. In discussing dysphoria, a first distinction is made between par-ticular and global affections. The fi rst type encompasses (...)

    Implementing Generalized Empirical Method in Neuroscience by Functionally Ordering Tasks.Robert Henman - 2016 - Dialogues in Philosophy, Mental and Neuro Sciences 9 (1):10-21.
    This article outlines a method of collaboration that will manifest a high probability of cumulative and progressive results in science. The method will accomplish this through a division of labour grounded in the order of occurrence of human cognitional operations. The following article explores the possibility of a method known as functional specialization, distinct tasks presently operative in neuroscience. Functional specialization will enhance collaboration within a science as well as initiate implementation of generalized empirical method. Implementation of generalized empirical method (...)

    On Hysterical Anorexia.Laségue Ernest Charles - 2016 - Dialogues in Philosophy, Mental and Neuro Sciences 9 (1):24-31.
    Ernest Charles Lasègue was a neurologist and alienist whose contributions to psychiatry vary from alcoholism to the famous folie à deux. One typical theme discussed in that historical period in France was hysteria, and the present work on anorexia is part of a larger reflection on that issue. This article is the English translation published by Lasègue of a contribution originally written in French. Anorectic symptoms are seen as part of a more general symptomatic complex. This paper is a good (...)

    In Defence of Chalmers: A Comment on Korf.Hane Htut Maung - 2016 - Dialogues in Philosophy, Mental and Neuro Sciences 9 (1):32-33.
    In “Qualia in a Contemporary Neurobiological Perspective”, Korf tackles the perennial issue of qualia in the philosophy of mind. His discussion is partly a response to Chalmers’ hard problem, which, as evidenced by other recent discussions in Dialogues, remains fresh after nearly two decades. Korf highlights the importance of regarding each brain as a particular shaped by unique contingencies and suggests how neurobiological research might proceed in light of this. However, I argue that his discussion does not address what is (...)

    The Hysterical Anorexia Epidemic in the French Nineteenth-Century.Sara Valente - 2016 - Dialogues in Philosophy, Mental and Neuro Sciences 9 (1):22-23.
    The official birth of hysterical anorexia is attributed to the French alienist Ernest Charles Lasègue (1816-1883). Starting from his 1873 article, anorexia as a ‘new’ psychopathological picture is subjected to extensive clinical and theoreticalstudy. This paper is not an analysis about the process through which anorexia was formalized as specific psychiatric condition. Rather, it focuses on another important issue: the possibility that the ‘same’ disorder may have different meaning depending on the historical period considered. Furthermore, it is asserted that the (...)
