This groundbreaking volume of original essays presents fresh avenues of inquiry at the intersection of philosophy and psychiatry. Contributors draw from a variety of fields, including evolutionary psychiatry, phenomenology, biopsychosocial models, psychoanalysis, neuroscience, neuroethics, behavioral economics, and virtue theory. Philosophy and Psychiatry’s unique structure consists of two parts: in the first, philosophers write five lead essays with replies from psychiatrists. In the second part, this arrangement is reversed. The result is an interdisciplinary exchange that allows for direct discourse, and a volume at the forefront of defining an emerging discipline. Philosophy and Psychiatry will be of interest to professionals in philosophy and psychiatry, as well as mental health researchers and clinicians.

Review:

"This is a really excellent collection of diverse-in-topical new papers at the philosophy/psychiatry interface. The literal cross-talk between philosophers and mental health professionals within the book is an especially welcome and helpful feature."

George Graham, Georgia State University, USA

"An original philosophical contribution to the study of mental disorder, focusing on its science, care, and policy. Philosophy and Psychiatry salvages what truly matters in effectively engaging with and addressing the complexity of mental disorders by unlocking the disciplinary gates, and pushing both philosophers and psychiatrists out of their comfort zone. The result is an impeccable illustration of why philosophy without psychiatry is incomplete, and psychiatry without philosophy is imperceptive."

Şerife Tekin, Daemen College, USA

"Philosophy of psychiatry books are aplenty these days. What makes this book important is simply the conjunction ‘and’. It is a volume on philosophy and psychiatry, methodically designed to provide a dialogue between specialists in both areas. This will prove valuable to students and practitioners alike."

Dominic Sisti, University of Pennsylvania, USA

"The consistently clear and engaging contributions are made all the better by inclusion of a mix of senior and younger up-and-coming scholars and by well-crafted critical commentaries accompanying each paper. This volume amply demonstrates the vitality of philosophy of psychiatry today; there is no better place to get a taste of the provocative thinking that is justifiably drawing so much attention to this socially relevant field."

Jerome C. Wakefield, New York University, USA

"This collection of essays would make a valuable contribution to courses in philosophy of mind and psychiatry. The writing across all the contributions is generally clear and accessible to the non-specialist. These cross-disciplinary conversations will undoubtedly contribute positively to improved research, care, service and also help to guard against the dangers of 'real mischief'."

Anya Daly, University of Melbourne

"On balance, this is an excellent collection, one that can serve as a model for constructive dialogue between those charged with the imperative to act in clinical time and those whose job it is to reflect in philosophical time."

Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews
