The 4th Biennial Conference of the Network for Phenomenological Research 


June 1-3, 2023

Neurodivergence and its various manifestations have attracted a significant amount of interest both in philosophy and in the empirical and clinical sciences of the mind fostering new research on the autistic spectrum, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, learning disabilities, etc. Despite this sustained, and actually ever-growing interest in the scientific community, a large number of issues remain in need of clarification and demand urgent attention. The Nature and Phenomenology of Neurodivergence is a two and a half-day conference that aims at shedding light mainly on the nature and phenomenology of the neurodivergent mind broadly construed, although a main focus of the conference will be on the autistic spectrum and its nosological characteristics and boundaries, e.g., in relation to the schizophrenia spectrum.
