    Ordinary Language and Life-World Philosophies: Toward the Next Generation in Philosophy and Psychiatry.K. W. M. Fulford, Giovanni Stanghellini & John Z. Sadler - 2022 - Philosophy, Psychiatry, and Psychology 29 (1):1-4.
    Philosophers have hitherto only interpreted the world in various ways; the point is to change it.Karl marx’s distinction between interpreting the world and changing it points by extension to the state of contemporary philosophy and psychiatry. The 1990s resurgence of interdisciplinary work in this area was driven equally by phenomenological scholarship and by initiatives in analytic philosophy. The former reflected the focus in phenomenology on ‘what it is like’ to experience a given mental symptom with the aim of reconstructing the (...)

    Doubt, Delusion and Diagnosis.Huw Green - 2022 - Philosophy, Psychiatry, and Psychology 29 (1):21-23.
    A team of professionals considers whether a patient in her early 50s is developing Alzheimer’s. The patient is not experiencing the memory symptoms typical of that disease, with so far a few years of sporadic attentional lapses as the predominant cognitive complaint. Her most dramatic symptom is her impression that two versions of her husband live with her. One is her real husband, the other a “fake.” There is no elaborated story about who the fake is or why he is (...)

    Assessing the Dangers of the Next Reductionist Fantasy.Douglas W. Heinrichs - 2022 - Philosophy, Psychiatry, and Psychology 29 (1):43-45.
    In this thought-provoking article, a number of very valid and serious ethical concerns are raised about the potential application of research in neuro-circuitry to future treatment devices in clinical psychiatry. Rainey elaborates the basis for his concerns within the framework of a hypothetico-deductive notion of science,, and in his characterization.) From this perspective, the critical source of problems derives from an interposed step C in which “techniques are applied to extract relevant signals from the complicated raw signal.” The resulting characteristics (...)

    Isolated by Oneself: Ontologically Impossible Experiences in Schizophrenia.Clara S. Humpston - 2022 - Philosophy, Psychiatry, and Psychology 29 (1):5-15.
    In the field of clinical practice, there does not seem to be too much contention about what schizophrenia is, at least from a high level. After all, there are various diagnostic systems and guidelines, all of which point toward schizophrenia as a psychotic syndrome which likely forms a continuum with other psychotic disorders. It may sound obvious that, according to the current definitions, the major commonality between schizophrenia and all other psychoses is psychotic symptoms; more precisely, delusions and hallucinations. Any (...)

    Accountability and the Cultivation of Virtue in Treatment.Michael Laney - 2022 - Philosophy, Psychiatry, and Psychology 29 (1):65-67.
    Peteet, witvliet, and Evans have done a great service in bringing to our attention the importance of accountability in all aspects of psychiatric care, in assessments of accountability in our patients’ lives—its role in treatment planning and engagement, and identifying it as a goal of treatment itself. In their paper, the authors distinguish the virtue of accountability from merely being accountable to another person by emphasizing one’s embrace of being accountable to others as a motivated disposition that furthers human flourishing. (...)

    Accountability, Autonomy, and Motivation.Christian B. Miller - 2022 - Philosophy, Psychiatry, and Psychology 29 (1):61-63.
    John peteet, charlotte witvliet, and c. stephen evans are to be commended for drawing our attention to the relatively neglected virtue of accountability, and for making the case that it is an important virtue to cultivate in general and specifically within the context of psychiatry. I find little to object to in their discussion, and so my comments here will be more of an invitation for them to address in greater detail two important issues: the relationship between accountability and autonomy, (...)

    Accountability and Autonomy.John R. Peteet, Charlotte V. O. Witvliet & C. Stephen Evans - 2022 - Philosophy, Psychiatry, and Psychology 29 (1):69-71.
    Christian miller invites further clarification about the relationship between accountability and autonomy. Whereas embracing accountability to others for one’s responsibilities in those relationships emphasizes relationality, autonomy accents the individual’s own capacities to exhibit agency in enacting one’s decisions. Accordingly, we theorize that relational capacities for empathic concern and perspective-taking are especially important in the virtue of accountability. The capacity for self-regulation may serve both one’s autonomous pursuits and accountability for carrying out one’s responsibilities...

    ‘Limited but Useful’: Datafied Brains and Digital Twins.Stephen Rainey - 2022 - Philosophy, Psychiatry, and Psychology 29 (1):47-48.
    Ivery much appreciated the thoughtful response to my Datafied brains and digital twins: lessons from industry, caution for psychiatry provided by Douglas W. Heinrichs. I am encouraged that we differ merely in emphasis among the issues upon which we share a wider understanding.In his response, Assessing the Dangers of the Next Reductionist Fantasy, Heinrichs elaborates upon an underemphasized dimension in my Digital Twin article. Heinrichs approaches this dimension through “a semantic understanding of scientific theorizing.” According to this understanding, all science (...)
