Philosophy has much to offer psychiatry, not least regarding ethical issues, but also issues regarding the mind, identity, values, and volition. This has become only more important as we have witnessed the growth and power of the pharmaceutical industry, accompanied by developments in the neurosciences. However, too few practicing psychiatrists are familiar with the literature in this area.
The Oxford Handbook of Philosophy and Psychiatry offers the most comprehensive reference resource for this area ever published. It assembles challenging and insightful contributions from key philosophers and others to the interactive fields of philosophy and psychiatry. Each contributions is original, stimulating, thorough, and clearly and engagingly written - with no potentially significant philosophical stone left unturned. Broad in scope, the book includes coverage of several areas of philosophy, including philosophy of mind, science, and ethics.
For philosophers and psychiatrists, The Oxford Handbook of Philosophy and Psychiatry is a landmark publication in the field - one that will be of value to both students and researchers in this rapidly growing area.

"The publication of The Oxford Handbook of Philosophy and Psychiatry is a useful marker of the growth of this field and its establishment as an important and flourishing part of philosophy. But it has more than symbolic meaning; it will be a resource that professionals both in philosophy and other areas of study turn to for a variety of purposes." -- Christian Perring, Metapsychology
