Open peer commentary on the article “Applying the Neurophenomenological Approach to the Study of Trauma: Theory and Practice Yochai Ataria, Mooli Lahad & Omer Horovitz The Study of Trauma” by Yochai Ataria, Mooli Lahad & Omer Horovitz. Abstract: The return to the subject can be understood in two senses: as the bearer of lived experience or as the transcendental instance that gives meaning to this experience. The methodological commitment of phenomenology to the sense of experience poses a problem for its access to the subjective origins of a pathological experience whose meaning eludes reflection. A rigorous application of the phenomenological method requires a reminder of the outline of the solution to this problem at the transcendental level of constitution of the world of life.
