  • Description
  • Details

The Oxford Textbook of Philosophy of Psychiatry is a unique textbook which provides a detailed introduction to the field, a framework for study and skill development, and an overview of current research.

Psychiatry is unique in medicine in being on the border between science and the humanities. Science provides insight into the 'causes' of a problem, enabling us to formulate an 'explanation', while the humanities provide insight into its 'meanings' and helps with our 'understanding'. The new interdisciplinary field of 'philosophy of psychiatry' has developed to explore the range of issues relevant to this border country. This textbook focuses on case studies in five key topic areas. Each case study is supported by selected readings from both philosophy and mental health, thinking skills exercises, self-test questions, key learning points and detailed guides to further reading.
