In this article, the author introduces the concept of psychopathological field that is the field of experience that represents an absence at the contact boundary. To grasp its emergence, the therapist must develop an aesthetic sensibility, which enables him/her to become attuned to the root of the experience where the field emerges as an atmospheric presence before distinct subjects and objects are defined. In this way he/she perceives how the intentionalities for contact at play move and shift to reveal the absence conveyed by the field, which can then be transformed into presence itself and beauty. Taking the subject of psychopathology to be of the field, rather than of the individual, opens up a radically relational horizon, with significant implications for clinical practice.
Keywords: Psychopathological field, psychopathology, aesthetics, domains of contact, perception, Gestaltung, pain, beauty, almost things, new-phenomenology, transgenerational.
