Invited speakers include Jacques Jouanna (Paris), Piero Tassinari (Newcastle), Oliver Overwien (Berlin), Caroline Petit (Warwick), Christine Salazar (Berlin).

The meeting is co-organised by AhP-Research group “Medicine of the Mind, Philosophy of the Body” and co-funded by the Alexander-von-Humboldt-Stiftung.
