*About the book:*
This book explores the relationship between schizophrenia and common sense.
It approaches this theme from a multidisciplinary perspective. Coverage
features contributions from phenomenology, cognitive neuroscience,
philosophy of mind, psychology, and social cognition.
The contributors address the following questions: How relevant is the loss
of common sense in schizophrenia? How can the study of schizophrenia
contribute to the study of common sense? How to understand and explain this
loss of common sense?
They also consider: What is the relationship of practical reasoning and
logical formal reasoning with schizophrenia? What is the relationship
between the person with a diagnosis of schizophrenia and social values?
Chapters examine such issues as rationality, emotions, self, and delusion.
In addition, one looks at brain structure and neurotransmission. Others
explore phenomenological and Wittgensteinian theories.
The book features papers from the Schizophrenia and Common Sense
International Workshop, held at New University of Lisbon, November 2015. It
offers new insights into this topic and will appeal to researchers,
students, as well as interested general readers.
