The Philosophy Department presents a Colloquium and Workshop by Dr. Don S. Levi, Emeritus, University of Oregon

Colloquium: October 5 Friday, 2:30 pm, Sakamaki Hall C-308

The Power of Powerlessness: Alcoholics Anonymous and Herbert Fingarette

Fingarette attacks what he says is the Alcoholics Anonymous doctrine that alcoholism is the incurable disease of being powerless over alcohol. I explain why the attack is misconceived, because, among other things, it fails to appreciate the power of powerlessness.

Workshop: October 3 Wednesday, 3:00 pm, Sakamaki Hall D-302 (Conference Room)
