The disunity of consciousness in psychiatric disorders

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (Book)Researchpeer-review

Abstract

It is often said that the normal unity of consciousness fragments, and perhaps even breaks down entirely, in psychiatric disorders. This chapter examines ways in which the unity-or, better, unities-of consciousness might be lost in the context of psychiatric disorders, such as multiple personality disorder, schizophrenia, and depersonalization.
