We invite 500-word abstracts for the first edition of the Buenos Aires Philosophical Perspectives on the Mind Sciences Workshop Series. The theme of this first edition will be the Philosophy of Psychiatry. The workshop will be held online on May 3 and May 4, 2023. All talks will be in English. Accepted speakers will have 30-40 minutes to present their papers, followed by 20-30 minutes of Q&A. A selection of the papers presented at the workshop will later appear in an edited volume in Spanish translation. Accepted papers will be committed for inclusion in that volume, with final drafts due by July 2023.

Abstracts should be sent before October 15, 2022 to [email protected]. Please prepare your abstract for blind review, and include author’s full name and affiliation in the text of the email only.

Eligible proposals should focus on themes from the Philosophy of Psychiatry. Possible topics include concepts of mental health and mental illness, validity and reliability of psychiatric classifications and diagnostic criteria, skepticism and defense of medical and biological approaches to psychiatry, feminist approaches to psychiatric nosology and treatment, concepts of cure and recovery, theories concerning specific psychopathological categories, rationality and psychopathology, motivation and psychopathology, emotion and psychopathology, phenomenology of psychiatric conditions, ethical aspects of psychiatric diagnosis and treatment, and the implications of philosophical reflection on psychiatric conditions for other philosophical problems, including topics concerning knowledge, mind, agency, intersubjectivity, and morality.
