Keywords:History of Psychology, History of Psychiatry, Sante De Sanctis, Ludwig Binswanger, Experimental Psychology, Phenomenological Psychiatry
AbstractThrough the reconstruction and publication of a previously unpublished correspondence between Sante De Sanctis and Ludwig Binswanger, this paper aims to highlight the salient features of the original clinical-differential approach on an experimental basis of the Italian psychologist and the particular phenomenological perspective of the theorist of Daseinsanalyse. A special attention is given to the Binswanger’s conference in Rome (May 1924), in which it’s possible to see all epistemological sensitivity of the Swiss psychiatrist, in the context of an unavoidable dialogue (with limits and contradictions) between psychology, psychiatry and philosophy.
