The public perception of “rare diseases” has been constructed through the media. Patients and family organisations in synergy with the mass media and the support of online social networks have provided their own defining elements. Between slogans that deny, question, or qualify what is “rare”, and others that maintain that “normal” is unreal, the last decades of the 20th century have witnessed the popularisation of “rare diseases”.

CfA workshop: Causation and Evidence in Medicine and Mental Health

The Philosophy & Medicine project is a joint initiative of the Peter Sowerby Foundation and King’s College London. The Sowerby Philosophy & Medicine project at King’s College London works to bring together medics and philosophers working at the intersection of philosophy of medicine, exploring the ways that philosophical research can enrich medical research and practice and vice versa. This year, our annual lecture will be held by Professor. Nancy Cartwright on the topic of causation and evidence in medicine and public health. Accompanying Professor.

We welcome abstracts for papers that engage in all three elements but are also open to
