In recent years, psychiatry has experienced several turns towards neurophysiology, genetics, and multi-level biological explanations. According to the current state of the art, understanding mental disorders requires looking at a variety of different factors contributing to the development and persistence of, as well as the recovery from, mental disorders. To do justice to the multi-factorial nature of psychopathology, a range of new approaches has recently been proposed. These include, among others, mechanisms, artificial or deep neural networks, computational models, multiplexes or multi-layered network models, predictive processing, functional brain networks, and symptom network models. In order to clarify the theoretical and conceptual foundations of contemporary research on psychopathology, the workshop “Minds, Models and Mechanisms” brings together experts from clinical psychiatry, neuroscience, computational modelling, philosophy of mind and cognition as well as philosophy of science.

We invite submission of extended abstracts (1000 words). Please submit your abstracts as an attachment in pdf format to and make sure to anonymize your submission appropriately. Submissions from early-career researchers and underrepresented groups in philosophy are especially encouraged.
