Posted by Paul Verhaeghe

The central argument of On Being Normal and Other Disorders is that psychic identity is acquired through one s primary intersubjective relationships Thus, the diagnosis of potential pathologies must also be founded on this relation Given that the efficacy of all forms of treatment depends upon the therapeutic relation, a diagnostic of this sort has wide ranging applicatiThe central argument of On Being Normal and Other Disorders is that psychic identity is acquired through one s primary intersubjective relationships Thus, the diagnosis of potential pathologies must also be founded on this relation Given that the efficacy of all forms of treatment depends upon the therapeutic relation, a diagnostic of this sort has wide ranging applications Paul Verhaeghe first critically evaluates the contemporary DSM diagnostic to show how the DSM categories remain relatively arbitrary and have little effect on the treatment governing metapsychological theory In the second part of the work, the author sketches out what such a metapsychology might look like when a Freudo Lacanian approach is combined with contemporary empirical research Close attention is paid to the processes of identity acquisition to show how the self and the Other are not two separate entities Rather, subject formation is seen as a process in which both the subject s and the Other s identity, as well as relationship between them, comes into being By engaging this new theoretical approach in a constant dialogue with the findings of contemporary research, this book provides a compass for the practical applications of such a differential diagnostic and post traumatic stress disorders are approached in two ways through the well known neurotic, psychotic, and perverse structures, as well as through the less familiar distinction between an actual pathology and a psychopathology Both being regarded as specific ways of approaching language and the relation to the Other, the author clearly spells out the implications for treatment at every turn.
