Example text

It was never a question of transposing purely and simply the data and methods used by a given philos­ opher into the realm of psychopathological facts. That would have led inevitably to a "hyperphilosophizing" of psychopathol­ ogy, a danger I carefully avoided and against which I warned my young colleagues who were following in my path; it would have risked deforming psychopathology entirely. The truth and the method to be followed lie elsewhere. A powerful movement seems to be gaining more and more support today.

To say that this passage is a matter of an acquisition, that it results from long efforts of adaptation, from my point of view only postpones the problem, to say nothing of the fact that one is substituting a genetic interpretation for the phenomenological study of time and, further, in doing so, is begging the question, since the ideas of genesis, progress, and evolution are them­ selves a part of the phenomenon studied and are only disengaged from it progressively.

Now I see things differently. I am grateful that life obliged 8 I L IVED T I M E me to take a long detour. Psychiatry brings us closer to life ; it can serve as a corrective , not to philosophical thought , but to the philosopher who deals wi th psychiatry. Today, when I read my notes from before the war, I believe that I ran the risk of foundering in abstract and nonviable speculations. On the other hand, the very fact that the general data of time could be applied to psychopathological facts not only did not degrade these facts but, on the contrary , by rendering them fecund , animated them with new life.
