Ciclo de Seminarios: La cultura material de la psiquiatría”

  Ciclo de Seminarios: La cultura material de la psiquiatría” Coordinado por Enric Novella (IILP-UV) En las últimas décadas, la historia de la psiquiatría se ha convertido en uno de los campos más dinámicos y apasionantes de la historia de la ciencia, acumulando un enorme caudal de aportaciones que han procedido a lo largo de cuatro grandes ejes historiográficos: la historia conceptual (que ha explorado con gran riqueza y detalle el desarrollo del discurso psicopatológico), la historia social (que ha mostrado la imbricación de los saberes y las prácticas psiquiátricas con varias formas de gobierno y control social), la historia profesional (que ha desvelado las retóricas y estrategias corporativas de los psiquiatras y otros especialistas  psi ) y la historia cultural (que ha permitido entender el desarrollo de la medicina mental como un producto estrechamente vinculado a la conformación de los atributos de la individualidad y la subjetividad moderna).

CfP: Thaumazein Philosophical Cosmology

Vol. 10, Issue 2, 2022, of “Thaumàzein” [ https://www.thaumazein.it/ ],  Edited by Marco Russo (University of Salerno),  The concept of the world has long been central to philosophy. Just today, at the time of globalization, systemic ecology and space travel, it is instead little considered. This call intends to solicit a new debate in the philosophical field but suitably open   to science. In fact, it is about discussing the elements that come together in the concept of world: the relationship between some key concepts of physics (time, space, movement, matter, life), metaphysics (God, totality, foundation, ontological categories)   and anthropology (action, freedom, community, good, value). On the border between theoretical thought and intuitive vision, symbolism and concrete practices, the world is from the very beginning linked to Heaven and Earth, to   kosmos   and   saeculum ,   in the attempt to obtain a unitary picture, that is a representation of what, more or less conflicting
