Serrano, A. (2012). ""Elementos para una ordenación fenomenológica de las experiencias aflictivas"". Anuario Filosófico, 45 (1), 121-144
My paper focuses on Buytendijk’s ordering of experiences of affliction, which is conceived from the point of view of physical pain. This classification of suffering into four different kinds allows a critical distance from Scheler’s reductive view of physical pain as an affective state, almost amorphous, which only reaches the ego in a mediated form.
