9780198566151: Dementia: Mind, Meaning, and the Person (International Perspectives in Philosophy and Psychiatry)

Dementia is an illness that raises important questions about our own attitudes to illness and aging. It also raises very important issues beyond the bounds of dementia to do with how we think of ourselves as people - fundamental questions about personal identity. Is the person with dementia the same person he or she was before? Is the individual with dementia a person at all? In a striking way, dementia seems to threaten the very existence of the self. This book brings together philosophers and practitioners to explore the conceptual issues that arise in connection with this increasingly common illness. Drawing on a variety of philosophers such as Descartes, Locke, Hume, Wittgenstein, the authors explore the nature of personal identity in dementia. They also show how the lives and selfhood of people with dementia can be enhanced by attention to their psychosocial and spiritual environment. Throughout, the book conveys a strong ethical message, arguing in favour of treating people with dementia with all the dignity they deserve as human beings. The book covers a range of topics, stretching from talk of basic biology to talk of a spiritual understanding of people with dementia. Accessibly written by leading figures in psychiatry and philosophy, the book presents a unique and long overdue examination of an illness that features in so many of our lives.

Review:


"It is a worthwhile read for anyone working with people with dementia and will repay the time and effort involved. Using a range of philosophical perspectives, it explores some fascinating questions about the nature of self: is the person with dementia the same person as they were before? Are they even fully a person? It answers these questions with humanity, making a powerful case for recognising the inherent personhood of people with dementia."--Mental Health Today


"One hopes that Dementia: Mind, Meaning, and the Person will inspire further philosophical quests for a more exhaustive and inclusive understanding of personhood and the application of such insights to practice."--Aging and Society


"Accessibly written by leading figures in dementia care, psychiatry, and philosophy, the book presents a unique examination of an illness that will affect our lives directly or indirectly and promotes a person-centered approach to dementia care. The book is recommended for a broad audience of health care providers and family caregivers."--Journal of Clinical Psychiatry


"This book squares off against the dark history of European culture with strenuous intellectual effort."--Journal of Interprofessional Core
