Lezione online con Lisa Bortolotti (University of Birmingham, UK).

With “delusions” we may refer to symptoms of mental health problems, such as schizophrenia, or beliefs that people cling to, which are implausible and resistant to counterevidence; these can include anything from beliefs about the benefits of homeopathy to concerns about alien abduction. Lisa Bortolotti explains what delusions are and argues that they can also play a positive role in people's lives, imposing some meaning on adverse experiences and strengthening personal or social identities.
