Abstract
The experience of thinking and language in the psychotic state of mind was examined using Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis. The result was discussed in terms of psychodynamic theories, including Freud’s notion of decathexis, the ”skin-ego” of Anzieu, and Hanna Segal’s theory of symbolic equation. Heidegger’s hermeneutic phenomenology functioned as theoretical basis for this single-case study. An emerging main theme was the split of the psychotic world of experience into two diametrically opposite states of mind, which respectively, affected the use of language. Themes related to the psychotic language were ”the language of creation” which was built upon the idea of language as the creator of reality, and ”the demand for truth”... (More)

Abstract (Swedish)
En persons upplevelse av det psykotiska tillståndets tänkande och språk diskuterades i denna fallstudie i relation till psykodynamiska teorier, däribland Freuds decathexis-begrepp, Anzieus begrepp ”hudjaget” och Hanna Segals teori om symbolisk likställdhet. Som metod användes Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis och den vetenskapsteoretiska utgångspunkten var Heideggers hermeneutiska version av fenomenologin. Framträdande i resultatet var den psykotiska upplevelsevärldens uppdelning i två diametralt motsatta tillstånd, och dessa tillstånds respektive påverkan på språket. Viktiga teman kring det psykotiska språket var ”det skapande språket”, som innebar en föreställning om språket som skapare av verkligheten, och ”sanningskravet” som... (More)

Viktiga teman kring det psykotiska språket var ”det skapande språket”, som innebar en föreställning om språket som skapare av verkligheten, och ”sanningskravet” som innebar ett förbud mot att uttala något osant. Språkets olika uttrycksformer relaterades till förändringar i symboliseringsfunktionen, och till det psykotiska tillståndets psykiska strukturer. (Less)
