Guest Lecture this Week

At this Thursday's lecture we have a guest lecture from WHO researcher and SFU Professor Emeritus Dr. Bruce Alexander -- one of the world's leading scholarly authorities on addiction.

The Globalization of Addiction: A Study in Poverty of the Spirit is Dr. Alexander's recent book from Oxford University Press arguing from a Dawinian position that free market capitaism is the cause of addiction.

Dr. Alexander's recent study for the Centre for Policy Alternatives, The Roots of Addiction in Free market Society, is available online in portable document format. You can read about him in Britain's Daily Telegraph and Guardian.

Dr. Alexander's lecture this Tursday will be on the crucial intellectual humanism of Charles Darwin.
