About the event

In 2017, substance abuse disorders affected 19.7 million Americans. Social scientists are still attempting to determine whether genetic predisposition or environmental influences are more likely to influence addictive behavior, and the best array of policy responses to addiction.

Join Cape Town University senior lecturer of experimental economics Dr. Andre Hofmeyr, professor of economics at the University of Cape Town Harold Kinkaid, and Jonathan Kaplan, professor of philosophy at Oregon State University to discuss the root causes of addiction.

This event is co-sponsored with the School of Politics, Philosophy, and Public Affairs at WSU, and the Claudius O. Johnson Professorship.
