In this article, we explore the self and its disturbance in schizophrenia. An accumulating amount of empirical studies testify that the self is disturbed in schizophrenia spectrum disorders but not in other mental disorders. This raises at least two important questions: what concept of self is implied in the self-disturbance in schizophrenia, and how, more specifically, is the self disturbed? Since the literature is ripe with different and proliferating concepts of the self, we present first a brief overview of three major views on the self, i.e. the ‘no-self’ view, the narrative view, and the experiential view. Against this backdrop, we explore how the selfdisturbance typically manifests in incipient schizophrenia and finally we specify the nature of the self-disturbance in schizophrenia.
