Philosophy and Medicine

Philosophy and Medicine


Can pain be measured objectively? What is good evidence? Do I have the right to bind my future self? Can the mind cause effects in the body? How is the mental different from the physical? King’s College London has thriving communities of medics, medical researchers, philosophers, and students keen to explore the intersection of these areas where we ask the same questions using different tools and perspectives. This initiative creates a space for such conversations with new activities including the King’s Colloquium in Philosophy and Medicine, an Essay Contest, and an Annual Lecture. All events are free and open to the public.
