Professor Tim Thornton
University of Central Lancashire
University College
The specific focus of philosopher Tim Thornton’s research
during his Fellowship was the emergence of pathology from
difference and a broader area of research concerning the
nature of mental disorder (including its normativity). He
developed three papers on the emergence of meaning, and
normative notion, within interpretation. This latter area is the
subject of his Insights article.
