Topic areas


The seminar will be devoted to the issues of normativity present in the current notion of personality disorder (mainly that formulated in the DSM). More specifically, it will be the Humean fact-value distinction as well as its recent criticism based on some properties of thick normative concepts that will be brought to the fore in the context of dominant psychiatric conceptualisations.

Discussion will be based on a recent paper by Konrad Banicki (Personality disorders and thick concepts, In press, Philosophy, Psychiatry, & Psychology). The paper will be disseminated among the participants before the event.
