Addiction and Medicine

Tuesday April 2 at 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm EDT

Start time where you are: Your time zone couldn't be detected


Join John T. Maier, a philosopher and psychotherapist (PhD/LICSW) based in Boston, and the author of a forthcoming book on the theory of addiction. This is the second salon in a series on The Philosophy of Addiction, introducing philosophical perspectives on addiction and the questions that it raises.

On an influential view, addiction is a kind of disease. Is this view true? Is addiction best treated through medicine and specifically through psychiatry? What does it mean to treat addiction as a defect or pathology?

This is event #2 in a series on “The Philosophy of Addiction.” No need to have attended previous or future sessions to take part.
