  • Irreducibility

    Irreducibility of the Subjective Experience

    • Project Number: SC16_025
    • Project Lead: Patrizia Giampieri-Deutsch, Karl Landsteiner University of Health Sciences / Division Psychodynamics
    • Duration: 36 months starting from 01.09.2017

    Background

    The dissertation project clarifies ontological questions in light of the mind-body problem providing a solid conceptual and philosophical framework that integrates a broad spectrum of different research results. Of key interest is the scientific understanding of the phenomenon of mental processes, which is difficult to explain within the causal structure of the physical world. Subsequently, it will be examined how mental processes realize their reference to other subjects, to intramental processes and to non-mental givens and processes. The focus is on the fundamentals of perception and the question of what makes an experience an experience in the first place, with special consideration of its qualitative and phenomenal aspects. The exploration of subjective experience, especially with regard to the therapeutic relationship, is thus placed on a sound foundation and opens up the possibility of new insights into basic research in medicine, the health sciences and the humanities.

    Freud, Lipps and the problem of empathy

    • Project Number: CICLO XXXI SSD M-FIL/O3
    • Project Lead: Patrizia Giampieri-Deutsch, Karl Landsteiner University of Health Sciences / Division Psychodynamics
    • Duration: 48 months starting from 01.10.2015

    Background

    The research project, from which the dissertation "Freud, Lipps and the Problem of Empathy" as well as a number of publications have emerged, examines a philosophical source of Sigmund Freud that has not yet been fully elaborated. The concept of empathy, much-discussed in light of new results in the neuroscientific and cognitive field (not least because of the discovery of mirror neurons), has led to a revival of the theories of Theodor Lipps, one of the most important pioneers of empathy research. The historical research opens a new reading of Lipps' texts. Five appendices complete the dissertation with new translations of Lipps´ texts. Against the background of current research the work of Dr. Ivan Rotella systematizes the concept of empathy as elaborated by Lipps and its influence on Sigmund Freud.
