Presented by the Faculty of Philosophy and the Department for Continuing Education, this event will explore the areas in which the philosophy of mind and ethics or the philosophy of value come into contact with issues about mental health.

Philosophy of psychiatry includes within its ambit questions about the nature of mental disorder as distinct from purely neurological disorder, questions about the psychological conditions required for moral responsibility and legal culpability, and questions about the appropriate kinds of explanations that can be provided for mental disorder. Addressing these questions requires drawing on the resources of many branches of philosophy, including legal philosophy, ethical theory and philosophy of value, philosophy of science, and philosophy of mind and psychology.
