Report from the Philosophy of Pharmacology session at the 9th Congress of Analytic Philosophy (ECAP9)

The presentations were about why deep understanding of causation, mechanisms and the local context is essential for increasing drug safety, particularly for individual patients. In this session was also Ralph Edwards, former Director of the Uppsala Monitoring Centre for drug safety, which acts as the official advisor for the World Health Organisation (WHO). The Philosophy of Pharmacology project, PhilPharma, is funded by the European Research Council (ERC) and led by Barbara Osimani. Both Barbara and Ralph are members of CAPS.
