    Science Café XL met Damiaan Denys over (ab)normaliteit *
    Prime-Minister Rutte once urged Geert Wilders to ‘act normal.’ Election programs are written for ‘normal Dutch people.’ There is a lot of attention these days for what is normal. But what actually is ‘normal’ if you get down to it? Children suffering from depression are abnormal. Children looking at screens five hours a day are considered normal. Where is the dividing line between normal and abnormal? How do you determine who is normal and who is not? Psychiatrist and philosopher Damiaan Denys provides clarity on this in this XL edition of Tilburg Science Café. (language: Dutch) Read more

    Science Café XL met Damiaan Denys over (ab)normaliteit *
    Premier Rutte maande Geert Wilders in de tweede kamer ooit aan om "normaal" te doen. Verkiezingsprogramma’s worden geschreven voor "de normale Nederlander". Normaliteit staat in de belangstelling. Maar wat is normaal? Kinderen met een depressie zijn abnormaal. Kinderen die vijf uur per dag naar een beeldscherm kijken vinden we normaal. Waar ligt de grens tussen normaliteit en abnormaliteit? Hoe stel je vast wie normaal is? Psychiater en filosoof Damiaan Denys brengt hierover helderheid in deze XL-editie van Science Café Tilburg.
