Abstract and Keywords

The chapter first introduces a phenomenological concept of temporality, referring to time as pre-reflectively lived vs. consciously experienced. Lived time is based on the constitutive synthesis of inner time consciousness on the one hand, and on the conative-affective dynamics of life on the other hand. Experienced time, for its part, results from an interruption and desynchronisation of lived time. It unfolds into the dimensions of present, past and future, leading to autobiographical time and finally to narrative identity. On this basis, major psychiatric disorders such as schizophrenia, melancholic depression and obsessive-compulsive disorder will be presented as paradigm cases for a psychopathology of temporality.

Keywords: temporality, inner time consciousness, conative-affective dynamics, lived time, autobiographical time, narrative identity, schizophrenia, melancholic depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, desynchronization
