In Jaspers’ psychopathology, such understanding was mainly an empathic understanding, an emotional reliving (Nacherleben, Nachgef€ uhl). We will discuss it in the next section. Now it needs to be stressed that Jaspers clearly admitted that by means of this method we can understand those phenomena which are similar to what we might have experienced in similar circumstances.

In other words, they are basic possible ways to be, allowing a study and a comparison of the different ways of being-in-the-world characterizing psychopathological conditions.
