    Senior Scholars' Series: The Passions that Drive Academic Life
  • Cyclic function is determinative of virtually all biological activities at the cellular level through to an organism’s biological existence, from blood flow to breathing, food intake, sleeping and reproduction behaviour. Analysis of human (and animal) behaviour also reflects this cyclic behaviour extending from interpersonal to societal relationships. This presentation integrates the speaker’s interests in Sociology, Medical Science, Epistemology and Social Philosophy, in the creation of medical facilities, in student-faculty interactions and insights, and in improving patient care locally and globally.
  • Unless otherwise noted, all of our lectures are free to attend and do not require registration.
