BERTEN, André. Expressing suffering: phenomenology, cognitivism, pragmatics. Psicol. rev. (Belo Horizonte) [online]. 2010, vol.16, n.2, pp. 221-250. ISSN 1677-1168.

Existential experiences involve a subjective aspect and cannot accommodate an expression that makes them integrally communicable. But this does not mean the acceptance of the solipsism implied by philosophies of consciousness, such as Husserl’s and Sartre’s phenomenology. If cognitivism indicates that, in subjective experience, there is a supplement that cannot be rendered objective, hermeneutics shows how it is possible, through narrative language, to conceive some communicability, although semantically limited, of subjective states. On the other hand, with basis on the theory of categories and the idea of learning, cognitive psychology points out a partial universal, making possible some communication of emotions. However, it is only in common action, in pragmatics, that interpretive hypotheses can overcome their indetermination and be eventually confirmed

Palavras-chave : subjectivity; communication; phenomenology; cognitive Psychology; hermeneutics; pragmatics.
