The University of Adelaide, the research center Science Textes Languages and the Institut Jean Nicod are pleased to announce a two days interdisciplinary workshop of self-awareness and its pathologies.

The nature and even existence of self-awareness is a venerable topic in philosophy. It is equally important to psychologists, psychiatrists and neuroscientists who often look to philosophy for frameworks in which to explain disorders such as the experience of depersonalisation. One notable interdisciplinary development in the area is a focus on the role of interoceptive processes in the experience of self awareness. This workshop is an opportunity to assess recent work in the area focussing on, but not limited to, a range of conditions in which self awareness is compromised or in extreme cases absent.
