Derealization is a subjective experience of unreality of the outside world, while depersonalization is unreality in one's sense of self. Although most authors currently regard derealization (surroundings) and depersonalization (self) as independent constructs, many do not want to separate derealization from depersonalization. These symptoms often co-occur, but there is another, more philosophical reason: the idea that the experience of self, others, and world is one continuous whole.
