BLOC, Lucas  e  MOREIRA, Virginia. Arthur Tatossian: a biographical study. Rev. abordagem gestalt. [online]. 2014, vol.20, n.2, pp. 181-188. ISSN 1809-6867.

This article consists of a biographical study which aims at presenting the historic and bibliographic trajectory of Arthur Tatossian (1929-1995). French psychiatrist of Armenian origin, Tatossian may be considered one of the most important contemporary representatives of the Phenomenological Psychopathology Tradition. Considering the relevance of a return to biographical elements and theoretical influences which brought about the construction of an already recognized model of phenomenological psychopathology, we have presented an account of Tatossian's history, as displayed in some of his publications and in posthumous tributes. In addition, we have pointed out some theoretical influences such as Husserl, Heidegger and Merleau-Ponty, philosophical phenomenology authors, and Binswanger, Tellenbach and Blankenburg, phenomenologist psychiatrists with whom Tatossian kept constant dialogue. Finally, we have presented some current perspectives which are fruit of his thinking in countries such as France, Italy and Brazil. Tatossian developed a phenomenological psychopathology model with the clinic as a starting point and final destination as well. His fundamental concern was always the caring of suffering patients and the development of a theory which was not disconnected from practice while always maintaining an imminently phenomenological character.
