Split Mind in a Split time
The Disturbance of Internal Time Consciousness in Schizophrenia
Time is essential to our daily lives, it is familiar and yet distant, unknown to us. The structures of consciousness, responsible for our experience of time, may be neglected until they become disturbed in conditions like schizophrenia. Through his phenomenological approach, Husserl has investigated how we constitute time. In the present paper, Husserl’s analysis is outlined and set apart from other theories of temporal experience, namely, Augustine. The insights from Husserl have been applied to understanding how the disruption of time unfolds in different symptoms of schizophrenia. Husserl’s investigation may help characterize schizophrenia as a structural disturbance of time consciousness.
