Abstract

97 ANTHROPOLOGICAL AND ONTOANALYTICAL ASPECTS OF DELUSION W. Blankenburg The problem of delusion can be diagnosed from diverse points of view. For the clinician diagnostic, prognostic and therapeutic aspects are prominent.' But beyond these one can face the fact that such a thing as delusion exists at all. The doctor has to be concerned not only with the conditions of the actual appearance of a specific delusion but also with the conditions of the possibility (Bedingungen der Moglichkeit) of paranoid experiences.

In the framework of these differing conditions the
