Schizophrenia, like other "pathological" conditions, has not been systematically included in the general study of consciousness. By focusing on aspects of chronic schizophrenia, we attempt to survey one way of remedying this omission. Some basic components of Edmund Husserl's phenomenology of human experience (intentionality, constitution, and unbuilding) are explicated in ...
