The Disordered Mind: An Introduction to Philosophy of Mind and Mental Illness

£9.99

Product description

This title examines and explains, from a philosophical standpoint, what mental disorder is: its reality, causes, consequences, and more. It is also an outstanding introduction to philosophy of mind from the perspective of mental disorder. Revised and updated throughout, this second edition includes new discussions of grief and psychopathy, the problems of the psychophysical basis of disorder, the nature of selfhood, and clarification of the relation between rationality and mental disorder. Each chapter explores a central question or problem about mental disorder, including:

* What is mental disorder and can it be distinguished from neurological disorder?
* What roles should reference to psychological, cultural, and social factors play in the medical/scientific understanding of mental disorder?
* What makes mental disorders undesirable? Are they diseases?
* Mental disorder and the mind-body problem
* Is mental disorder a breakdown of rationality? What is a rational mind?
* Addiction, responsibility and compulsion
* Ethical dilemmas posed by mental disorder, including questions of dignity and self-respect.
