The contributors address the following questions: How relevant is the loss of common sense in schizophrenia? How can the study of schizophrenia contribute to the study of common sense? How to understand and explain this loss of common sense?

They also consider: What is the relationship of practical reasoning andlogical formal reasoning with schizophrenia? What is the relationship between the person with a diagnosis of schizophrenia and social values?

The book features papers from the Schizophrenia and Common Sense International Workshop, held at New University of Lisbon, November 2015. It offers new insights into this topic and will appeal to researchers, students, as well as interested general readers.
