FIGUEROA C, Gustavo. The attenuated schizophrenia revisited: loss of the natural evidence. Rev. chil. neuro-psiquiatr. [online]. 2015, vol.53, n.2, pp.117-126. ISSN 0717-9227.

Blankenburg applied Husserl's phenomenolgy to patients with hebephrenic schizophrenia which no longer have a sense for what is sociable suitable. These patients lose a sense for things that are evident in every day common sense. Blankenburg debates with Jaspers and Binswanger about the role of intuition and phenomenological method in hebephrenia. He returns to a Husserlian approach of genetic phenomenology to uncover the loss of natural evidence in the formation of attenuated schizophrenia. Phenomenological philosophy can help clarify the concepts at the heart of schizophrenia and thus has practical relevance. Philosophical thinking and a more patient-centered approach to psychiatry should be integrated into the research of psychiatrists.

Keywords : Hebephrenia; genetic phenomenology; common sense; natural evidence.
