The Association for the Advancement of Philosophy and Psychiatry (AAPP) aims to promote discussion between the fields of philosophy and psychiatry.

AAPP invites abstracts for presentation on any philosophical issues relevant to psychiatry, or any psychiatric issues or experiences that are relevant to philosophy. Our aims for this conference are to bring together thinkers from many disciplines who are interested in the philosophy of psychiatry, while providing a forum for the presentation of exciting work on both emerging and well-recognized issues in these overlapping domains. Accordingly, submissions may consider philosophical issues raised by psychiatric research and clinical practice, or the implications of findings in psychiatry for established psychiatric problems. We welcome abstracts representing any subdiscipline of philosophy including Philosophy of Mind, Philosophy of Science, Ethics, Moral Theory, Phenomenology, Philosophy of Technology, Feminist Philosophy, Social and Political Philosophy, provided that they touch on questions in psychiatry.  Psychiatric themes could address any issue in psychiatric education, research, diagnosis, or mental health care, provided that they have clear philosophical implications or demonstrate the importance of philosophical theory in psychiatric work.  

Abstracts of 500 – 600 words, prepared for anonymous review, should be sent to both of the conference organizers via the email addresses below. The submission will be confirmed by a returning email message. Questions about the conference should also be addressed to them. Abstracts are due on October 15, 2018. Notices of acceptance or rejection will be sent by January 15, 2019. Presentations will be strictly limited to 20 minutes, followed by 10 minutes for discussion.
