Abstract and Keywords

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.

Keywords: anosognosia, schizophrenia, dissociative identity disorder, unity of consciousness, self-consciousness, co-consciousness
