What do psychiatrists encounter when they encounter psychopathological experience in their patients? How should we interpret such experiences? In this chapter we contrast a standard checklist approach to diagnosing and treating psychopathology, based on psychological operationalizing, and a non-standard phenomenological approach that emphasizes the importance of a specific kind of interpretive interview.
