Epistemic Injustice, Silence and SpeechHavi Carel (University of Bristol), Dan Degerman (University of Bristol)
What is mental health? Can we make sense of psychosis? What’s the connection between mental health and concepts including race & evolution? Explore these questions, among others, through the lens of philosophy at the 2023/4 London Lectures
We normally take it to be the case that speaking our minds is good and keeping silent may be a sign of oppression. In this talk I suggest that the roles given to speech and silence are more nuanced and context dependent and that an injunction to ‘break the silence’ may be in infringement rather than support of one’s identity, epistemic integrity and confidence.
