MUZQUIZ JIMENEZ, Alvaro. A. and the broken radio: Causal reduction in a case of psychosis in the elderly. Rev. Asoc. Esp. Neuropsiq. [online]. 2011, vol.31, n.3, pp.515-526. ISSN 0211-5735. http://dx.doi.org/10.4321/S0211-57352011000300009.
In this work we try to explain different approaches to the case of a patient, whose illness is assumed to be caused by an organic impairment. To that end we use Kurt Schneider's and Karl Jasper's writings as theoretical backgrounds, in an attempt to avoid an approach that only considers causes, favouring, rather, another that accounts for the patient's experience.
