Abstract: 

How auditory are auditory hallucinations? How alien? This talk presents a phenomenological analysis of voice hearing among persons with psychosis based on extensive interviewing and survey research. I find that when one listen carefully to these experiences one finds that the experience is far more complex than our clinical preconceptions lead us to expect.
