What does it mean to be „normal“? Why is normality an important factor in our lives, who sets the standards of normality, and what does his or her competence reflect?
At philocafe we dealt with a statistical and normative understanding of normality and we wondered why statistically normal behavior became a social norm of behavior (for example, why is it normal what most people do?).
Some of the issues we have dealt with are:
What is the criteria of normality and how is it established?
Who determines normality?
Is normal, „good“?
What if my normal is not their normal?
