 An introduction to Owen: As an undergraduate I studied Philosophy and Psychology at Oxford University.  Initially I intended to train as a clinical psychologist but my interest in philosophy and how it could be applied to problems in psychology lead me instead to do an MA in Philosophy.  Around this time I was diagnosed with Schizophrenia and I decided to direct my studies towards trying to understand the condition.  I have just completed a PhD in Philosophy on the topic of understanding delusions and have been asked to write a chapter on this area in the forthcoming Oxford Handbook of Philosophy and Psychiatry.
