Delírios e os limites explanatórios da psicologia do senso comum

  • José Eduardo Porcher Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul
Palavras-chave: delírio, crença, psicologia do senso comum, explicação em psiquiatria

Resumo

Neste artigo, examinarei a controvérsia sobre como melhor definir o delírio—um sintoma central de patologias como a esquizofrenia e a demência—e apresentarei algumas das principais dificuldades envolvidas em sua caracterização como crenças. A partir disso, tirarei conclusões sobre os limites do vocabulário mentalista da dita psicologia do senso comum e sobre a forma como delírios e outros fenômenos elusivos devem ser propriamente caracterizados pela psiquiatria para que uma explicação integrativa destes seja alcançada.
