    Schizophrenia and the Fate of the Self.Paul Lysaker & John Lysaker - 2008 - Oxford University Press.
    With ever more detailed models of the neurobiological and social systems out of which schizophrenia is born, it is possible to overlook how suffering persons actually experience their symptoms.This book examines the experiences of persons who suffer from schizophrenia. It provides a highly readable and humane examination of this common condition.

    Emerson and Self-Culture.John T. Lysaker - 2008 - Indiana University Press.
    How do I live a good life, one that is deeply personal and sensitive to others? John T. Lysaker suggests that those who take this question seriously need to reexamine the work of Ralph Waldo Emerson. In philosophical reflections on topics such as genius, divinity, friendship, and reform, Lysaker explores "self-culture" or the attempt to remain true to one's deepest commitments. He argues that being true to ourselves requires recognition of our thoroughly dependent and relational nature. Lysaker guides readers from (...)

    Schizophrenia and the Experience of Intersubjectivity as Threat.Paul Henry Lysaker, Jason K. Johannesen & John Timothy Lysaker - 2005 - Phenomenology and the Cognitive Sciences 4 (3):335-352.
    Many with schizophrenia find social interactions a profound and terrifying threat to their sense of self. To better understand this we draw upon dialogical models of the self that suggest that those with schizophrenia have difficulty sustaining dialogues among diverse aspects of self. Because interpersonal exchanges solicit and evoke movement among diverse aspects of self, many with schizophrenia may consequently find those exchanges overwhelming, resulting in despair, the sensation of fusion with another, and/or self-dissolution. In short, compromised dialogical capacities may (...)

    Essaying America: A Declaration of Independence.John Lysaker - 2012 - Journal of Speculative Philosophy 26 (3):531-533.
    American life storms about us daily, and is slow to find a tongue.Early in his Meditations, Descartes suggests that, at least once, one should set one's epistemic bushel in order, as if beliefs were apples to be sorted. But that is not quite right, even though he uses the image in his replies to the seventh set of objections. Descartes's principal concern is not each and every belief but the ways in which he justifies them. It is thus not a (...)

    Ethics, Indifference, and Social Concern.John Lysaker - 2012 - Epoché: A Journal for the History of Philosophy 17 (1):143-154.
    The ongoing task of self-discovery, which I figure as self-finding, following Emerson, is integral to the human condition. While its results are always fragmentary, self-finding also conducts the currents of life in ways that establish conditions for our lives and those of others. This activity is mistakenly constrained by Charles Taylor, who argues that it remains tied to moral space. Charles Scott’s work shows how moral space can be found in a manner that suspends the necessity of moral space and (...)

    The Shape of Selves to Come: Rorty and Self-Creation.John T. Lysaker - 1996 - Philosophy and Social Criticism 22 (3):39-74.
    Through a critique of Richard Rorty, I develop a program of self-creation. While Rorty rightly encourages ironic and poetic redescriptions, his feel for this work is disembodied and context-blind. In contrast, I propose an institutionally situated and full-bodied creative exercise which contextually reworks central tropes. Rorty's position is also overly privatized. This hinders 'public' discourse and imprisons marginalized persons within institutionalized identities. Self-creation should not be a solely 'private' affair. Rorty's public/ private distinction has some merit, however. We should, on (...)

    Are we reduced to the dilemma of either the predicable or the ineffable?Bear with me: I rarely feel as if extant debates allow me to situate myself, so permit me a different course. Resolutions: Philosophy moves across a scene of voices, perhaps despite "philosophy," which has proved, in certain ways, disinterested in voice, in its inevitable particularities, averse, perhaps, to how voice calls attention to itself—as if that were a distraction, at best an ornament, but even then, an impurity in (...)

    Writing is always a sign of hope, even when it is pessimistic. One is compelled to say something to someone, if only oneself. Something still wants saying. Without hope, there is no point.Cynicism: despair masquerading as knowledge.The year 1988. Jesse Jackson is in Atlanta. "Keep hope alive!" he tells the Democratic National Committee. The phrase—more imploring than imperative—culminates the address, resounding four times in the last six sentences. Watch or listen to the speech. Beneath Jackson's vigor, desperation resonates.

    In general, current biomedical models of schizophrenia focus on distinguishing discrete elements that, on their own or in combination with others, might lead to some form of disability. These different and potentially autonomous aspects of the disorder that might disrupt daily activities include positive and negative symptoms as well as disturbances in neurocognitive and psychobiological processes. Such disturbances include genetic vulnerabilities that increase the risk of abnormalities in brain development, and resultant neurocognitive deficits which interfere with the ability to carry (...)

    Praxis and Form: Thirty Notes for an Ethics of the Future.John Lysaker - 2011 - Journal of Speculative Philosophy 25 (2):213-238.
    We are inquiring [into] what virtue is, not in order just to know it, but in order to become good.It seems, reading them [Heidegger and Wittgenstein], . . . that some moral claim upon us is levied by the act of philosophizing itself, a claim that no separate subject of ethics would serve to study. . . . [W]hat needs attention from philosophy, is our life as a whole.What I propose, therefore, is very simple: it is nothing more than to (...)

    Relentless Unfolding: Emerson's Individual.John T. Lysaker - 2003 - Journal of Speculative Philosophy 17 (3):155-163.
    Amid its romantic excesses such as "[t]o believe your own thought, to believe that what is true for you in your private heart, is true for all men,—that is genius" (Porte 2001, 121), Emersonian individualism remains a living project, one we would do well to understand more thoroughly and pursue more rigorously. To aid in this recovery, I will, in a translating repetition of Emerson's thought that engages a range of texts, offer eight theses that any successful reconstruction of individualism (...)

    The courage is in letting go of something old that has been successful and has its own momentum.“As an assemblage, a book has only itself,” say Deleuze and Guattari. It exists “in connection with other assemblages and in relation to other bodies without organs. We will never ask what a book means, as signified or signifier; we will not look for anything to understand in it. We will ask what it functions with, in connection with what other things it does (...)

    Some poems can change our lives; they lead us to look at the world through new eyes. In this book, inspired by Martin Heidegger—who found in poetry the most fundamental insights into the human condition—John Lysaker develops a concept of ur-poetry to explore philosophically how poetic language creates fresh meaning in our world and transforms the way in which we choose to live in it. Not limited to a single poem or collection of poems, ur-poetry arises when, in the interaction (...)
