May 21, 2019 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm
Michael Pollan, best known for his investigations into the complicated human-food-plants relationship (The Omnivore’s Dilemma, The Botany of Desire), now turns his attention to the power of psychedelics. While scientists struggle to find treatments for various ailments and addictions, in his new book How to Change Your Mind, Pollan argues the next medical revolution may have already begun. Join him for a talk on psychedelics or what Pollan argues is a new frontier in our understanding of the mind, the self, and our place in the world.
