Problem of a Priori and the Humanities in L.Binswanger’s Existential Psychoanalysis

Gorchakova S. A., Kursk State University

The article is devoted to consideration of the anthropological project of L. Binswanger. According to his conception before addressing to the research of pathology of any given individual, it is necessary to understand what it means to be the person. And, it follows that the psychiatry gets into a field of the human sciences. Binswanger makes an attempt to transfer the fundamental ontology of Heidegger on the field of psychoanalytic practice, aspiring to overcome the subject – objective opposition and to investigate perceptual existence of the person in the world. He introduces new concept of existential and aprioristic structures of human existence, thereby having applied Heidegger’s ontology to the concrete person.
