Berlin Chapter of AAPP

The Berlin chapter of the AAPP (established in 2023) is a working group that welcomes clinicians, philosophers, and scientists who are interested in the Philosophy of Psychiatry. The chapter's main focus is to explore psychiatric topics through the lens of the Philosophy of Mind Sciences.
The organization aims to arrange online meetings for various purposes, including discussions of publications related to the philosophy of psychiatry, talks by scientists and philosophers, AMA (Ask Me Anything) sessions with distinguished authors in the field of philosophy of psychiatry, and online colloquia for participants to discuss their work drafts.
In the future, the Berlin chapter plans to organize interdisciplinary workshops for clinicians, scientists, and philosophers.
The working language of the chapter is English.
