Proposed theme is an excellent opportunity for debate concerning general and specific questions in the field of broadly understood philosophy of psychiatry, ethics and medical anthropology, philosophy of science, history, social theory and philosophy of culture. At the conference, we aim to discuss following thematic areas:

  • philosophy and architecture of the asylum – from the birth to the modern period;
  • axiological aspects of clinical practice; mythology and cultural notion developed around psychiatric hospital;
  • wisdom and art of healing;
  • code of conduct and values within the field of mental health;
  • ‘philosophy of clinic’ according to Antoni Kępiński, Kazimierz Dąbrowski and Kazimierz Jankowski’s postulates.

Seminar would also assume preliminary debate into ongoing reform of the polish system of psychological health protection, consisting, among others, of improvement of the statute and administration of psychiatric hospitals together with role of patients within the new system.
