Dr. Tania Gergel will give a talk entitled 'Ulysses contracts - Homer's Odyssey, fluctuating capacity and advance decision-making in psychiatry'
The Maudsley Philosophy Group
We address conceptual/philosophical issues central to psychiatry.
Because psychiatry encounters major philosophical questions, both at the level of research and practice, there is a need to nurture the interface between psychiatry and philosophy to a standard of excellence. Our activity consists of projects to bring high quality clinical and research psychiatry into contact with high quality philosophy.
We aim to help clarify psychiatric research and practice, improve the contact philosophy has with psychiatry and educate the public about the philosophical aspects of psychiatry.
