THREE MEN IN THE BOAT: THE PSYCHOTERAPIST, THE NEUROSCIENTIST AND THE PHILOSOPHER. PART I

In the last decades of the twentieth century, the cultural movement of neuropsychoanalysis has established itself. Its aim is to read the assumptions of Freudian theory in the light of the increasingly broad and sophisticated data provided by neurosciences. The risk is constituted by the assertion of a reductionism that flattens or eliminates subjective experiences to favor only the data provided by neuroimaging. Georg Northoff addressed this problem by attempting to harmonize the first person perspective of subjective experiences with the third-person perspective of experimental data.
In this first part of the article the assumptions of this author’s theory are examined together with those of other exponents of neuropsychoanalysis.
