"One's psychopathological "symptom" reveals his/her "subjectivity" in the most singular way, but also reflects the society and culture to which s/he belongs : every psychopathology is a product or even function of the time and place where it is observed. This international symposium entitled "Contemporary Psychopathologies and Civilisation" features eminent scholars from Japan, Canada and France, and focuses on four pathologies from the cutting edge of psychiatry and psychotherapy. With interdisciplinary approaches of anthropology, sociology, history and clinical studies, the symposium discusses the origin of the contemporary characters of these pathologies and what kind of social and cultural phenomena they are contemporary with.
