Why We Use "Evil Alcohol" to Celebrate Life, with Lionel Tiger and R. Curtis Ellison

Description

Rutgers University Charles Darwin Professor Emeritus of Anthropology Lionel Tiger, a noted researcher, author, and lecturer, will present a fascinating talk on the role of pleasure in our lives. Dr. Tiger contends that pleasure, including the consumption of alcohol, is biologically desirable and good for physical and mental health. The evening’s host, Boston University Professor of Medicine and Public Health R. Curtis Ellison, is best known to the public for his research on what is known as the “French Paradox.” Professor Tiger’s talk will be preceded by a dinner paired with wines especially chosen to illustrate the pleasures of good food and moderate alcohol consumption.
