Zdeněk Konopásek & Jan Paleček: Princip symetrie z hlediska respondentů: Posedlost, zjevení a duševní nemoc ve výzkumných rozhovorech s duchovními [The principle of symmetry from the respondents‘ perspective: Possession, apparition and mental illness in research interviews with clerics] (Olomouc)

Presentation at the conference Qualitative approaches for practice (VIIIth Czech-Slovak conference on qualitative research and methods in the human sciences), January 19-20 2009, Olomouc

We study how experiences such as hearing the voice of the Lord or having a vision of Virgin Mary are dealt with in psychiatry and catholic pastoral practice. How the status of these phenomena is negotiated by the participants? Under what conditions they become an instance of legitimate religious experience or, alternatively, symptoms of mental illness? We approach the study of these issues “symmetrically” - we do not prefer a priori medical or spiritual explanations. Some time ago, we demonstrated and explained such an approach (which is common, e.g., in contemporary sociology of science), and its relevance for our research, in an analytic paper on the movie “The exorcism of Emily Rose” (2005). The paper discusses a highly ambiguous relationship, pictured in the film, between medical and spiritual interpretation of the story of a young girl who was considered possessed by demons and who died after unsuccessful exorcism (Konopásek & Paleček 2006). Now, the question is: can such a symmetrical approach be of any relevance also for people we are studying? In an attempt to give an answer, we have interviewed four catholic priests on this issue. The priests had been asked to watch the movie on Emily Rose and read our paper on it in preparation for the interview. Based on these discussions, we would like to shed some light on whether and in what ways our specific epistemic perspective coheres with the views and positions of our respondents; and also, how this reflexive research experiment contributed to our own understanding of the role of the symmetry principle in our current research project.

Zdeněk Konopásek & Jan Paleček: Apparitions and possessions as border objects: An exploration into epistemic cultures of mental health care and pastoral care (Praha)

Presentation for the conference Politics of knowing: Research, institutions and gender in the making, Praha, November 27-28, 2008

Apparitions and possessions are a strange kind of phenomena. Being rather marginal and extraordinary experiences or happenings, often hardly accountable and controversial, they can be defined, treated, understood and accepted (i.e., performed, enacted) from within at least two different perspectives or epistemic cultures: mental health care and pastoral care. Simply put, they can be taken as symptoms of psychopathology or as genuine spiritual events. In this paper we would like to focus upon occasions when the two seemingly conflicting “interpretations” rather peacefully co-exist. Given the omnipresent tensions between “the rational” and “the spiritual” or between scientific and religious approaches to the world, such occasions - surprisingly - appear. And even more: as we will try to show in our empirical analysis, they are important for maintaining the respective epistemic cultures and their concepts strong, distinct, and yet interconnected.Apparitions and possessions are a strange kind of phenomena.
