Hmm, that could explain a lot, like willful misinterpretation? ;)

Dear Ontologists,


According to Lacan, psychoses such as in schizophrenia, are based on linguistic observations as recorded here:




Jacques Lacan (1901–1981) formulated an original theory of psychosis, focusing on the subject and on the structuring role of language. In particular, he postulated that language makes up the experience of subjectivity and that psychosis is marked by the absence of a crucial metaphorization process. Interestingly, in contemporary psychiatry there is growing empirical evidence that schizophrenia is characterized by abnormal interpretation of verbal and non-verbal information, with a great difficulty to put such information in the appropriate context.


Does anyone have other papers on this subject?
