Real persons, including patients and psychiatrists, are at the centre of psychiatry! So guided the theme 'Hypotheses, Neuroscience and Real Persons' of the 10th International Conference on Philosophy, Psychiatry and Psychology (PPP) held at extravagant Sun City from 26 to 30 August 2007. This theme was announced at the 7th International Conference in Heidelberg, Germany, in 2004, after the bid to host the conference in South Africa had been accepted in 2002. The Organising Committee was particularly pleased to learn later that the theme of real persons being at the centre of psychiatry is also a top programmatic priority of the World Psychiatric Association (WPA), for in 2005 the General Assembly of the WPA approved the Institutional Program for Psychiatry of the Person (WPA-IPPP).
