How should we think of mental illness? Is the classification and treatment of mental illness related to broader societal issues, or can mental disorders be reduced solely to neurobiological disorders? Can the study of mental illness can teach us something about ‘normal’ cognition? And how does what we think about mental illness impact on questions about responsibility and morality?
