Date: Tue, August 04, 2015
Time: 7:00 PM
With Dr. Thomas Lewis from UCSF

Thomas Lewis, M.D., Assistant Clinical Professor of Psychiatry, UCSF; Co-Author, A General Theory of Love

Love is defined as an intense feeling of deep affection for someone or something, but why does it mean so much more to us? Why does who we are and who we become depend on whom we love? Lewis will answer this and many other questions as he explores our human development, the nature of togetherness and the multifaceted bonds that connect us. Join us as we learn how the human race evolved from solitary predators into the intensely social creatures we are today.
