About the Series

Very often encounters between philosophers and psychoanalysts are philosophical examinations of the proprietary concepts of psychoanalysis: thus psychoanalysts supply data for an investigation carried out by philosophers. This series aims at a less asymmetrical  form of engagement between the two types of inquiry, by selecting topics - for example art, emotion, knowledge of others - which are proprietary to neither but of common interest to both. To this end, speakers are asked to make sure they present their ideas in a way that is accessible not only to fellow specialists, but to a mixed clinical and academic audience from a range of disciplinary backgrounds. The series is thus equally suited to philosophers (including graduate students in philosophy), clinicians (including those seeking Continuing Professional Development), and to trainees.

Each seminar will last two hours (19:00 – 21:00) and consist of a paper (40 mins), a response (20 mins), followed by discussion. Whenever the paper is presented by a philosopher, the response will be from a clinician and vice versa.  

There is a fee for each seminar of £15 per person, though please note that free places are available for philosophers, philosophy students and clinical trainees. These will be offered first come first served. To book, or to register for a free place, please contact:
