In this course we will explore-- biologically and socially-- the impact of
substance abuse and its place in our lives. What is addiction? Has the perception of addiction changed over time? Is there a necessary connection between self and substances? Is addiction a choice or is it a disease? Does it depend on genetics? Is it a disease? How can we develop the perceived benefits of substances—like the feeling of meaning, freedom, pleasure, goodness and
satisfaction-- without substances? Can addiction be cured?
This course is offer P/NP. Your passing grade will be based on active attendance, journal submissions every two weeks and a final paper.
