Current research

The current project is part of an interdisciplinary (philosophy, psychiatry, theology) project on "self-understanding and self-alienation". My contribution to the overall project is an empirical and conceptual examination of borderline personality disorder (BPD). The aim of the empirical part is to examine anomalous self-experiences (i.e. self-disorders) in patients with a clinical diagnosis of BPD to explore if and how these differ from self-disorders found in schizophrenia. The aim of the conceptual part is to discuss the current validity of BPD in light of the history of the borderline concept.
