The reconciliation between psychiatry and phenomenology
Psychology `borrowed' her methodology from the science of the physics. But with that specific application she disregards her `object' of study. Prior to all scientific requirements is that this object indicates the applicated method. This demand cannot be neglected with impunity.
A phenomenological approach does not only give room to the appropriate psychological method, but is also the most fundamental attitude for all sciences.
When we restrict ourselves to the psychoanalytic situation it becomes clear that the phenomenon `man' is one which is characterized by being an interpretative being. The psychiatrist is in search for connections in context and makes hypotheses which he tries out in the analysis. The object in view is to trace back meaning. And that is precisely which cannot come into view within the science of physics.
