Philosophy & Medicine Reading Group discusses topics at the intersection of philosophy and medicine, with a special focus on Medicine and the Mind. We will base our discussion in each session on a paper. All members of the group are welcome to suggest relevant reading. Please do feel free to participate even if you have not been able to read the material or have missed a meeting. If you would like to suggest specific readings, please do not hesitate to get in touch with the group convener, Dr Tuomas Pernu by email.
