Apragmatism - Definition

December 2016


Definition


Apragmatism is characterized by the impossibility of undertaking any action whatsoever; there is no motivation to act. It is a symptom of psychiatric disorders such as schizophrenia, severe depression, obsessive disorders, and numerous neurotic disorders. Apragmatism leads to complete inactivity, occasionally even catatonia (a generalized rigidity associated with a refusal of all mobility) when it is the consequence of schizophrenia.
