信件 – 知觉扭曲 – NYTimes.com 书评 2010年4月18日 信件 知觉扭曲 发表: 2010年4月15日 致编辑: “颤抖的女人” Siri Hustvedt:癫痫 (2010年4月4日) 就像大多数发表的具有“无法解释”神经精神症状的病例一 样,Siri Hustvedt女士的新书《颤抖的女人》(4月4日)就是关于这个难以名状的情况:不能明确的恐怖感,一个隔代相传的有关于战争暴行的见证记忆,由于不 断失去而产生的痛苦和恐惧感。任何企图将这些问题以文字来进行合理表达的尝试都会显得徒劳而无力,但Hustvedt女士在书中对这种情况的探讨却显得一 针见血,并且她认为所有学科 – 从医学到哲学 – 本身都因为表述的模糊性而受到了限制和影响。 因此医者批评患者未能清晰的描述其痛苦而无从下手,这是一 种没有根据的推理。我很害怕自己也产生Hustvedt女士所指责的相同的错误:只希望看到和听到自己想看到和听到的那些东西。作为一个临床和法医神经学 家,精神科医生,经常会遇到由于无法名状的痛苦情绪而产生的知觉扭曲现象。而这种现象无论在文学创作还是文学评论中也都不可避免的存在着。 裴莫许 纽约 作者为哥伦比亚大学临床精神学助理教授,纽约州立大学下属医学中心神经学副教授

Any attempt to put the unspeakable on paper will necessarily fall short, but Hustvedt’s sustained … Continue reading

A conversation between Siri Hustvedt and Maurice Preter MD

In 2006, the novelist and essayist Siri Hustvedt suffered an inexplicable seizure while speaking at a memorial service for her father. The seizures continued to occur, and the condition remains undiagnosed. Her most recent book The Shaking Woman or A History of My Nerves tells the story of her condition and explores her symptoms through the lenses of several disciplines: medical history, psychiatry, psychoanalysis, contemporary neuroscience, philosophy, and literature.
