Empathy and Phenomenology in the Contemporary Debate
Abstract – After briefly comparing Simulation Theories and Theory Theories, I will support a phenomenological interpretation of the intersubjective experience. In particular, I will focus on those pathologies which seem to involve a disruption of the “Social Self”, such as schizophrenia and autism, and I will suggest that they are essentially intersubjective diseases caused by a weakness of the pre-reflective and corporeal self-awareness. I will support my thesis with a “phenomenological test” that I have developed and applied on an Asperger subject: a semi-structured interview that, taking into account the phenomenological method and its principles, as well as stimulating the subject through images and questions about emotions and beliefs, has allowed an exploration of his (inter)subjective structures.
