Philosophy, Psychiatry & Psychology
Philosophy, Psychiatry, & Psychology (PPP) focuses on the area of overlap between philosophy and abnormal psychology and psychiatry. PPP seeks to: (a) enhance the effectiveness of psychiatrists, clinical psychologists, and other mental health care workers as practitioners, teachers, and researchers by illuminating the philosophical issues embedded in these activities; and (b) advance philosophical theory by making the phenomena of psychiatry and clinical psychology more accessible to philosophers. The Editors seek original contributions of a conceptual, empirical, or historical nature. In addition to manuscripts from its core disciplines of philosophy, psychiatry, and abnormal psychology, PPP welcomes pertinent contributions from related fields such as general medicine, neuroscience, social science, anthropology, nursing, law, and theology. Occasionally, the journal publishes a "philosophical case conference" on a particular problem in clinical practice.
