Phenomenology of vertigo and dizziness




Vertigo, Dizziness, Phenomenology of Pain, Husserl


What emerges from a phenomenological description of the experiences of dizziness and vertigo for a general phenomenological theory of the constitution of the world? What emerges from this contribution to the general project of a phenomenology of pain? In this paper we try to answer both questions by showing their intimate relationship. For this it will be necessary to carry out a phenomenological description of both phenomena that shows the possible limitations of its clinical determination as it has been established recently (Bisdorff, Von Brevern, Lempert, Newman-‑Toker, 2009)2. Through successive phenomenological descriptions of the experience of vertigo and dizziness, we will try to show the importance of the axis of verticality in the phenomenological theory of the constitution of the world, as well as its relationship with the axis of horizontality.
