  • Joel KruegerEmail author
  • Mads Gram Henriksen


In this comparative study, Joel Kreuger and Mads Gram Henriksen examine experiential disruptions of embodiment and affectivity in Moebius Syndrome and schizophrenia. They suggest that using phenomenological resources to explore these experiences may provide a better understanding of what it’s like to live with these conditions, and that such an understanding may have significant therapeutic value. Additionally, they suggest that this sort of phenomenologically informed comparative analysis can shed light on the importance of embodiment and affectivity for the constitution of a sense of self and interpersonal relatedness in normal conditions.
