Brain and Mind: From Concrete to Abstract
A one day exploratory workshop whose aim and purpose will be to bring together students (advanced undergraduates and graduates) and more senior academics across a range of disciplines in order to share perspectives and broaden our understanding of the way in which different disciplines approach the same phenomena. Disciplines represented will include: medicine, psychiatry, psychology, philosophy and literature. We intend to explore schizophrenia and examine the ways in which different disciplines try to understand schizophrenia from their particular perspectives. The workshop will consist short lectures and student-led group discussions.
