    The Body and the Other: A Crisis of the Self-Representation in the Disorders of Post-Modernity.G. Castellini - 2017 - Dialogues in Philosophy, Mental and Neuro Sciences 10 (2).
    Eating disorders and gender dysphoria can be conceptualized as psychopathological conditions of post-modernity, mirroring the transformations of our society and the differences between cultures across the world. They both move from a crisis of the taken for granted self-identity. Furthermore, from a phenomenological perspective, the clinical manifestations are based on a disorder of lived corporeality. In this sense. The present paper is theoretically grounded in the field of the phenomenological concepts of lived body and physical body. Furthermore, I took into (...)

    The Effects of Reductive Physicalism Within the Field of Mental Healthcare.A. K. Diaz & J. C. Honea - 2017 - Dialogues in Philosophy, Mental and Neuro Sciences 10 (2).
    Over the past three decades, psychological distress has increasingly come to be explained in neurobiological terms by both mental health professionals and the general public. Disorders like major depression are now most commonly understood to be symptoms of some, as of yet unidentified, biochemical or neurological disturbance in the brain and thus treatment often focuses exclusively on the pharmacological without being inclusive of psychotherapeutic options. This etiological claim rests on the same assumptions as does reductive physicalism within philosophy. Understanding this (...)

  4. On Psychic Diseases.W. Griesinger - 2017 - Dialogues in Philosophy, Mental and Neuro Sciences 10 (2).
    All mental illness is disease of the brain' is the sentence by Griesinger which is frequently quoted as example of a reductionist approach to psychiatry. On the occasion of the bicentennial of his birth, a selection of his very influential book for physicians and students is presented. It is shown that Griesinger believes in the assumption above, nonetheless his approach is not dogmatic but empirical, open to consider alternative views and rejecting à priori only those hypotheses that cannot be tested (...)

    Associative and Oppositional Thinking: The Difference Between the Brain Hemispheres.L. Keating - 2017 - Dialogues in Philosophy, Mental and Neuro Sciences 10 (2).
    The theory presented here has implications for philosophy in respect of how concepts and words can be mechanically defined. For neuroscience the paper at least sets out a problem that has received little consideration and offers a possible solution. Also the theory may be relevant to robotics in terms of object manipulation. Concepts need to be separated from each other in the brain in order for an animal to act on one object in isolation. A possible solution is to inhibit (...)

    Anorexia Nervosa as Nervous Affection.S. Fenwick - 2017 - Dialogues in Philosophy, Mental and Neuro Sciences 10 (1).
    Samuel Fenwick was a gastroenterologist of the Victorian age. His interest in anorexia nervosa derives from his studies on the diseases of the stomach and digestive organs, published in On the atrophy of the stomach and on the nervous affections of the digestive organs. In this book, from which the present article is taken, he presents theoretical reflections and clinical observations of anorexia nervosa. In Fenwick's view loss of appetite can depend on several diseases of digestive functions, but it is (...)

    Searching for a Mind's Brain: Questioning Underlying Biophilosophical Assumptions.J. Korf - 2017 - Dialogues in Philosophy, Mental and Neuro Sciences 10 (1).
    This article assesses the applicability of a number of biological and neurobiological concepts to biophilosophical concepts of life and mind. Life, as instantiated by viable cells and organisms, is considered as a prerequisite of mind. Views such as embodied cognition, external mind or scaffolding theories were ignored. The biological characteristics of life and mind that are in particular relevant in the present context are: reversibility and irreversibility of brain processes, distinction between metabolic and potential brain energy, and the continuous turnover (...)

    The Mind-Brain Problem in Psychiatry: Why Theoretical Pluralism is Better Than Theoretical Monism.A. Moreira-Almeida & S. de Freitas Araujo - 2017 - Dialogues in Philosophy, Mental and Neuro Sciences 10 (1).
    The mind-brain problem is a persistent challenge in philosophy and science, having marked implications for psychiatry. In this paper, we claim that physicalism, a kind of theoretical monism, is usually taken by many psychiatrists as the only possible solution to the MBP, and argue that this may have negative consequences for the field. Not only does it restrict the psychiatric training, thereby preventing professionals from considering and reflecting upon different perspectives on the MBP, but it also leads clinical psychiatrists to (...)
