Phenomenology and Mind invites submissions for a special issue dedicated to “The Phenomenology of Social Impairments”. This special issue will offer a phenomenologically informed perspective on these issues. Phenomenological approaches help shed light on the experiential aspects of human sociality, and facilitate a systematic exploration of various subjective and intersubjective experiential anomalies.
We welcome contributions that are related – but not limited – to the following questions:
- How can phenomenological methods help explain disturbances of intersubjectivity?
- How can we distinguish between the structures of intersubjective engagement in autism spectrum disorder, schizophrenia and borderline personality disorder?
- How does corporeality impact the development of intersubjectivity and what are the ways in which it is disrupted?
- How does interaffectivity modulate social engagements and how is it regulated and disturbed?
- Can we use phenomenology to elaborate new therapeutic directions?
