The phenomenological approach in existential-analytical psychotherapy 2334

Langle A.
PhD in Philosophy, Dr. of Medicine, President, Austrian psychotherapist, clinical psychologist, Professor of medicine and philosophy, GLE-International, Vienna, Austria

The phenomenological openness to the world is anthropological feature of the man. Thanks to an openness he is capable to distinguish essential and to understand the world. Purely empirical approach is blind regards to really important, so far as concerns Person, i.e. about «a being of the person». Only phenomenological installation can approach to perception processes studying and understanding essential — those maintenances which lie more deeply direct sensations and factuality. The existential analysis is a psychotherapy in which centre of attention lies in persons-being (Person-Sein) and existence — preconditions and possibilities of the present “executed” life. In this psychotherapy the phenomenological method is basic.

Keywords: a phenomenological method, the person (Person), psychotherapy
