    *4pm Saturday July 23*



    *“Psychiatry – Folk psychology or cognitive science?”*


    *Our speaker, Daniel Hutto, *Professor of Philosophical Psychology,
    University of Wollongong, says faces a tough choice between two
    competing ways of understanding mental disorders. The folk
    psychology view puts our everyday common-sense in the driver’s seat.
    Opposing this, the scientific image view holds that our
    understanding of mental disorders must come, wholly and solely, from
    the sciences of the mind. Professor Hutto will argue that these two
    perspectives can be reconciled to provide a sound basis for a future
    psychiatry.of which involve talking animals, deformed trees and
    hunchbacks, to muddy our presumption of a stable and unchanging world.


    *Come and join us for a stimulating talk and lively discussion *at
    the Hall at the Blackheath Neighbourhood Centre, cnr Gardiner
    Crescent & the Great Western Highway, 4pm-6pm, followed by informal
    discussion at the pub.Admission $10 includes a big afternoon tea
    before question time. Hall is heated.All welcome!**
