The Potomac Institute for Policy Studies is pleased to present the second event in the John Henry Cardinal Newman Lecture series for 2010, chaired by Dr. James Giordano, director of the Center for Neurotechnology Studies.
The lecture will be by Prof. Peter Moskovitz, MD, a surgeon and neurophilosopher on the faculty of the George Washington University School of Medicine. His talk is entitled "Toward a Neurobiological Theory of Empathy." Prof. Moskovitz will explore the question of whether human beings are neurologically predisposed to behaviors commonly described as displaying empathy, sympathy, or altruism, all of which foster interaction within groups.
