Example text

By challenging these foundations, we have followed Heidegger in an attempt to define an ontology that grasps the Self as a ‘who’: not, that is, by means of ontological categories applied to things produced, but through ways of being – a Self marked by ways of ‘feeling-in-the-world’. This exercise has inevitably led us to reconsider the three distinguishing elements that modern thought, as well as common sense, have regarded as the essential qualities of the Self: interiority, unity and continuity.

In this sense, the Self ‘is not reflectively present’, it is not present to itself through a reflection generated by an interior space. Reflection springs ‘outside itself’, from things themselves. And this being ‘outside itself’ immersed in a background of men and things which reflection presupposes as the very condition for a return to the Self (but not as an I, which is already given and which comes out of the Self in order to meet the world and the other to then return to the Self). It may be said that relating oneself (Verhalthen) is situated against the background that is ‘already revealed’, hence familiar for us, by way of encountering the things we have to deal with in our daily lives.

He writes (Guidano, 1991: 33): ‘an Organization of personal meaning is to be interpreted as a unitary ordering process in which continuity and internal coherence are sought in the specificity of the formal, structural properties of its knowledge processing (flexibility, generativeness, and abstracting level) . . ’ The therapist employs this model to seek principles which the patient uses to order his experience. Such principles – which remain constant throughout the patient’s life – enable the patient to consistently recognize and appraise his experience as unitary and continuous in time.
