Michel Henry: Sense of self and hallucination

Michel Henry: sentimento de si e alucinação

Florinda MARTINS Andrés Eduardo Aguirre ANTÚNEZ About the authors

Abstract

In this paper we develop the thesis of the possibility of understanding human beings, starting from the phenomenality of their therapeutic needs. We bring the phenomenality of hallucination to the center of the debate. We show how, in Michel Henry, the phenomenality of sight, touch and anguish is, in all, comparable to the phenomenality of hallucination. From the starting point of this phenomenality we will understand human actions and thus, the essence of clinical practice.
