News items

A few things came to my inbox in the last week.

From the latest issue of Medicine, Health Care and Philosophy Volume 12, Number 2 / May, 2009

The ethics of self-change: becoming oneself by way of antidepressants or psychotherapy?
Fredrik Svenaeus


Should or should not forensic psychiatrists think about free will?
Gerben Meynen

A very fancy website using the Adobe Flash Player for the
12th International Conference for Philosophy & Psychiatry 2009
on the generic topic of "Understanding Mental Disorders." October 22-24, 2009, Lisbon, Portugal.
(Personally I am not a fan of sites that make it impossible to copy their text.)
The deadline for abstracts is very late: 30 August 2009. Presumably this means that that notification of acceptance of abstracts is also very late. I'd normally expect to book airline tickets and make hotel reservations in August for an October conference. Maybe it is a safe bet that most abstracts will be accepted.

And finally, a call for papers:
Vol. 4, No. 1: IJFAB Special Issue: Feminist Perspectives on Ethics in Psychiatry
Guest Editors: Jennifer Hansen, Nancy Potter and Jennifer Radden
Deadline for Submission: March 1, 2010
I'll skip the rather long text, and just give the contact info:
For more information, please contact Jennifer Hansen:
