The Psychotic Transition: Some Remarks on the Nature of Hallucination-Inducing Imaginative Experiences

Download Edit this record How to cite View on PhilPapers
There are numerous studies suggesting a substantial link between psychotic hallucinatory states and some forms of disordered imaginings. We have to figure out (1) what characteristic makes imagining, not other mental states, prone to induce hallucination, and (2) what underlies the (phenomenological/conceptual) transition from imagining X to the hallucinatory experience of X? In this paper, I will try to provide answers to these questions, in order to shed light on the nature of the so-called “misidentified” or “disordered” imaginative experience. To achieve this, I emphasize the phenomenological aspects of hallucination and imagination.
