Spotkanie koncepcji Antoniego Kępińskiego i Karola Wojtyły w świetle fenomenologii: inspiracje dla psychoterapii i psychiatrii
Psychoter 2012;163(4):27–37
The aim of this article is to discuss and compare two complementary phenomenological conceptions, which might be useful in therapetical practice. In his work Kepinski created two original psychiatric ideas:, energetic-informational metabolism model and axiological approach to psychiatry. On the other hand Karol Wojtyla in his main work, The acting person describes the dynamic model of integration of a person in action. He stresses the differences between two types of dynamics in human nature:, I act (action) and, something is happening in me (activation). The author of this article proposes a correlation of the two models described above, in which on the top of their integration axis stands the dynamic, person-action superior unity. This unity outlines, the top-down voluntary direction of movement (according to the second phase of information metabolism) and penetrates through the psychosomatic unity as well as complexity, all the way down to cell structure. This relationship of person-action unity with dignity (arche-value) constitutes the axiological correlation. The meeting of these two original phenomenological conceptions allows for a deeper understanding of patients and can be yet another inspiration to psychotherapy and psychiatry as a science.
