Experiences of Depression synopsis
Depression experiments are a philosophical exploration of what feels like depression. In this important new book, Matthew Ratcliffe puts a detailed story of depressionexperiences by relying on work in phenomena, philosophy of mind, and many other disciplines. By doing this, he demonstrates how research phenomena can contribute to psychiatry, by helping us better understand patients' experiences, as well as rating information, diagnosis, and treatment.
In his book, Ratcliffe also emphasizes the importance of depression in philosophical research. It is suggested that by thinking about how depressionexperiences differ from "healthy" experiences, we can improve our understanding of both.
Hence this research of phenomena of this kind has a much broader applicability. It also shows how studying depressionexperiences enriches the philosophical approach in a range of subjects, including interpersonal understanding, empathy, free will, experience of time, the nature of feelings and feeling, what to believe in something, and what to do is hope.
This book will be of interest to anyone seeking to understand and deal with depression, including philosophers, psychiatrists, clinical psychologists, therapists and those who have been directly or indirectly affected by depression.
