The present contributions aims to investigate the importance of Edmund Husserl’s transcendental phenomenology in latest Binswanger’s works, especially considering his phenomenological studies about schizophrenia. Indeed, the interest in a deeper comprehension of schizophrenic experience leads Binswanger to integrate both static and genetic phenomenology into Daseinsanalytic method, in order to achieve a wider sight on schizophrenic psychoses and their development. Due to genetic phenomenology Husserl focuses on the two main conscience structures – intentionality and temporality – dealing with constitution of the experience as a whole. What emerges behind experience itself is the rich background of passive synthesis and the typical aproblematic feature of living the common world.
