Phenomenology and distress

Welches, Philip January 1977 (has links)
This thesis has explored the area of phenomenology (and in particular, existential phenomenology) and the application of the - phenomenological method to psychotherapy. Such exploration has been undertaken largely by considering the contributions of individual philosophers and psychotherapists.The philosophers whose contributions have been considered are Descartes, Husserl, Heidegger, and Sartre. The development from Descartes' method of universal doubt to Husserl's pure phenomenology, and from Husserl's phenomenology to the application of the phenomenological method toward studying Being (Heidegger) and toward studying man's existence (Sartre) is observed.The application of the phenomenological method to psychotherapy is investigated by considering the contributions of the existential phenorenological psychotherapists Binswanger, May, and Laing.

Towards a phenomenological model for a critical psychotherapy

Gennrich-de Lisle, Peter Hirzel January 1985 (has links)
This thesis aims to establish a model of psychotherapy that is based on experience, but which takes social structure into account. To do this it first sets up a theoretical model of psychotherapy. Thereafter the model is used to analyse four protocols as a way of examining its effectiveness. The analysis of the protocols provides the basis for coming to certain conclusions about the nature of psychotherapy. The theoretical phase first examines the area traditionally known as etiology, but here the approach is from a broadly existential perspective. Thus this section starts by proposing a view of human nature, and then it goes on to say how this nature comes to be disrupted. The influence of the broader social context upon human existence is also considered here. Secondly, there is an attempt to understand how psychotherapy works. Drawing on existential and cultural anthropological material, various themes of psychotherapy are examined, and these are then placed within their social context. Finally, the theoretical phase brings together the themes emerging from the two foregoing sections and integrates them into a single model of "etiology" and "cure". In the following chapter, the adequacy of this model is examined by using it to analyse four protocols written by subjects on their experience of therapy. In the final chapter various conclusions are drawn.

Learning from Higgs physics at future Higgs factories

Gu, Jiayin, Li, Honglei, Liu, Zhen, Su, Shufang, Su, Wei 29 December 2017 (has links)
Future Higgs factories can reach impressive precision on Higgs property measurements. In this paper, instead of conventional focus of Higgs precision in certain interaction bases, we explore its sensitivity to new physics models at the electron-positron colliders. In particular, we study two categories of new physics models, Standard Model (SM) with a real scalar singlet extension, and Two Higgs Double Model (2HDM) as examples of weakly-interacting models, Minimal Composite Higgs Model (MCHM) and three typical patterns of the more general operator counting for strong interacting models as examples of strong dynamics. We perform a global fit to various Higgs search channels to obtain the 95% C.L. constraints on the model parameter space. In the SM with a singlet extension, we obtain the limits on the singlet-doublet mixing angle sin theta, as well as the more general Wilson coefficients of the induced higher dimensional operators. In the 2HDM, we analyze tree level effects in tan beta vs. cos(beta-alpha) plane, as well as the one-loop contributions from the heavy Higgs bosons in the alignment limit to obtain the constraints on heavy Higgs masses for different types of 2HDM. In strong dynamics models, we obtain lower limits on the strong dynamics scale. In addition, once deviations of Higgs couplings are observed, they can be used to distinguish different models. We also compare the sensitivity of various future Higgs factories, namely Circular Electron Positron Collider (CEPC), Future Circular Collider (FCC)-ee and International Linear Collider (ILC).

The personal and social construction of meaning

Butt, Trevor January 1998 (has links)
This submission for a PhD comprises a collection of published work with a supportive analysis and commentary. It is an investigation of how meaning resides in the world, while still relying on personal and social construction. It provides a critique of both the individualism of personal construct theorists and the anti-humanism of the social constructionists. The project draws on clinical and experimental evidence, as well as on an analysis of the work of George Kelly, contemporary constructivists, social constructionists, and existential phenomenologists. Kelly's (1955) personal construct psychology (PCP) is extended as an existential phenomenology that privileges the interpersonal realm in construing. The fifteen papers in the collection are grouped around five themes: i) the problem of cognitivism in personal construct psychology ii) choice iii) the integrity of the self iv) the critique of social constructionism v) constructivism and existential phenomenology. Within these themes, a wide range of issues is focused on. This includes, firstly, a variety of phenomena which occur in everyday life, but stand out in relief in psychotherapy (for example, self-deception and 'neurotic' choices), which have generally been focused on by clinical personality theories. And secondly, personal experience said to be characteristic in post modernity (for example, individuals' sense of fragmentation and the proliferation of sexual preferences and identities), which have traditionally been the province of sociology, and more recently, of social constructionism. In conclusion, it is argued that PCP can viably be seen as a theory of social action when it is viewed as a type of existential phenomenology. Construing is seen as being located in action in interpersonal contexts, and not 'inside' individuals. In conferring meaning on events, individuals draw on surrounding social constructions, although they do not absorb them uncritically. Personal construction is also limited by the individual's experience as an embodied subject and to this extent, it is argued, meaning is both'made' and'found'.

Complexity and hermeneutic phenomenology

Collender, Michael 12 1900 (has links)
Thesis (DPhil (Philosophy))--Stellenbosch University, 2008. / This thesis argues that the study of the brain as a system, which includes the disciplines of cognitive science and neuroscience, is a kind of textual exegesis, like literary criticism. Through research in scientific modeling in the 20th and early 21st centuries, anong with the advances of nonlinear science, and both cognitive science and neuroscience, along with the work of Aristotle, Saussure, and Paul Ricoeur, I argue that the parts of the brain have multiple functions, like words have multiple uses. Ricoeur, through Aristotle, argues that words only have meaning in the act of predication, the sentence. Likewise, a brain act must corporately employ a certain set of parts in the brain system. Using Aristotle, I make the case that human cognition cannot be reduced to mere brain events because the parts, the whole, and the context are integrally important to understanding the function of any given brain process. It follows then that to understand any given brain event we need to know the fullness of human experience as lived experience, not lab experience. Science should progress from what is best known to what is least known. The methodology of reductionist neuroscience does the exact opposite, at times leading to the denial of personhood or even intelligence. I advocate that the relationship between the phenomenology of human experience (which Merleau-Ponty explored famously) and brain science should be that of data to model. When neuroscience interprets the brain as separated from the lived human world, it “reads into the text” in a sense. The lived human world must intersect intimately with whatever the brain and body are doing. The cognitive science research project has traditionally required the researcher to artificially segment human experience into it pure material constituents and then reassemble it. Is the creature reanimated at the end of the dissections really human consciousness? I will suggest that we not assemble the whole out of the parts; rather human brain science should be an exegesis inward. So, brain activities are aspects of human acts, because they are performed by humans, as humans, and interpreting them is a human activity.
