Abstract

Abstract:

Complex posttraumatic stress disorder, depersonalization, and schizophrenia are not identical phenomena, yet this article suggests that they nevertheless share at least one feature; in all these cases, the body becomes a defective tool, an IT. In turn, those suffering from these phenomena (e.g., complex posttraumatic stress disorder, depersonalization, and schizophrenia) can no longer be-in-the-world through the living body but instead experience their body as an object; managing their lives on the level of body image.
