Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The equivocity of the term delusion has led to it being considered a mere artifact. In this study, its meaning is considered as a psychopathological metaphor to be able to consider the relationships of man with the distorted reality. To do so, the meaning of the concept of man must be adequately understood, and based on this, observe the relationships that man establishes with reality. This relationship is always an aspiration to truth, although not exclusively as judicative as is usually understood. From this time, a series of apparently unconnected and rare psychopathological phenomena can be joined in view of the essentially veritative relationship. This relationship has been subjected to serious and deep philosophical considerations during the XX century and has left its mark on the psychopathological concept of delusion. This equivocity of delusion, finally dependent on a psychopathology that is understood in regards to an unsatisfactory idea of man, may be explained based on a better and more purified psycholopathological practice that is up-dated in regards to concepts of subjectivity and truth.
