About the summer school:
Delivered by experts in the field, the summer school will explore the areas in which the philosophy of mind and ethics, or the philosophy of value, make contact with issues about mental health. This interactive two-day programme will include guest lectures and seminars, and will consist of presentations by seminar leaders and collaborative talks providing opportunities for substantial dialogue between philosophers, clinicians, scientists and others. The event is organised by members of the University of Oxford Faculty of Philosophy.
The summer school will run in person on 14-15 July 2022. Places are strictly limited and offered on a first come, first served basis; due to the collaborative nature of the programme, remote or hybrid attendance will not be possible. A flexible range of residential and non-residential packages are offered to suit participants' needs. The final date for registration is 3 June 2022 if all places are not filled earlier; if registrations exceed the maximum number, a waiting list will be in operation.

Cancellation and Amendments Policy:
Please note that due to the collaborative nature of the programme, the summer school will run in person only, and remote or hybrid attendance will not be possible.
- The Faculty of Philosophy reserves the right to alter the details of the summer school should illness or any other emergency prevent a tutor from teaching, and to cancel the programme if exceptionally low enrolment would make it educationally unviable. The status of the summer school will be reviewed on 17 June 2022; if it is likely that the event may be cancelled, all those affected will be notified by email within seven days, and possible options clearly explained. If you have not heard from the Faculty of Philosophy by 24 June 2022, you should assume that the summer school will be running; there is no need to contact us to confirm. You may wish to delay finalising your travel arrangements until after this date.
- Should it become necessary to cancel the event due to other reasons, including but not limited to the Covid-19 pandemic, we will make every reasonable effort to give you as much notice of cancellation as possible. In the event of cancellation by the Faculty of Philosophy, we will refund all event fees paid by you (including the cost of the dedicated accommodation, if this has been reserved at the time of booking). Where fees have been paid in currencies other than in pounds sterling, refunds will be subject to the exchange rate on the date they are processed.
- The Faculty of Philosophy cannot be held responsible for any costs you may incur in relation to travel or offsite accommodation bookings as a result of a course cancellation, or if you are unable to attend the course for any other reason. You are advised to check travel and booking cancellation policies carefully, and to purchase personal travel insurance.
Participants who choose to cancel their place after registration must inform the Administrative Officer by emailing email@example.com. The following cancellation and refund policies apply in all such cases:
- Cancellation before 3 June 2022, or within 14 days if registered after 20 May 2022: full refund of all fees paid
- Cancellation after 3 June 2022, or more than 14 days if registered after 20 May 2022: no refunds will be made*
- Cancellation due to testing positive for Covid-19, if the required period of isolation will not end before 14 July 2022: full refund of all fees paid (subject to provision of appropriate evidence)
*In the event that a waiting list is in operation and the space can be filled by 24 June 2022, a full refund will be issued
The event will take place in person, and all efforts will be made to ensure that guests can participate safely. Guidance on face coverings and social distancing will be in line with the University's policy at the time, hand sanitiser will be provided onsite, and rooms will be well ventilated. All participants will be encouraged to take a lateral flow test each morning of the summer school to prevent the spread of the virus.
