The aim of the essay is to show how some aspects of the philosophicalphenomenological anthropology are a guide regarding Ludwig Binswanger’s diagnosis and therapy. And that is a valid "presupposition" of his clinical praxis. In my paper I follow the phenomenological method pinpointing how the analysis of clinical cases examined by Binswanger confirms the human tripartition according to Husserl’s position. The validity of phenomenological approach is confirmed by the comparison between Husserl and Freud. In the conclusion I observe that knowledge of the structure of the human being is useful to the individuation of the clinical cases in a fruitful circularity, which underscore the complexity of the human being, his/her strength or his/her frailty, not forgetting his/her dignity.
