The time of material reality corresponds to the measurable time of physics, flying uniformly "without relation to the external world", while human reality moves and transforms itself in relation to external reality. This is a starting-point to try to explain the subjectivity of experienced time and its alterations in mental illness. After a wide study of terminology and research in this subject, the collected data are compared with clinical experience, specifically referring to three clinical cases regarding depression, borderline and OCD, with emphasis on the experienced time typical of all these pathologies.
