What is a colloquia?

A colloquia is a series of community conversations in which experts, from various disciplines and perspectives, inform and engage the broader community to explore, discuss and debate critical issues in health policy. The Muskie School of Public Service is uniquely positioned to convene opinion leaders and researchers, policymakers and citizens to help enlighten and enliven Maine's health policy debate through a non-partisan and evidence based approach. Each colloquium will include presentations from outside experts followed by response from Mainers and a facilitated discussion among the group, with ample opportunity for audience engagement.

Featuring:

Joseph Antos, PhD., is the Wilson H. Taylor Scholar
in Health Care and Retirement Policy at American
Enterprise Institute.

Prof. John Nale

 Descartes on Love, Blood and the Mind-Body Problem

 Abstract:

We are all familiar with Descartes' mind-body problem as well as his pineal gland 'solution'. Here, I argue for a reinterpretation of the problem that focuses on comments from Les passions de l’âme, where Descartes claims that at conception the soul falls in love with the blood located in the heart.

Following his predecessors such as Francisco Suarez and physician Jean Fernel, Descartes believes that the mind joins with the body on the basis of certain dispositions or accommodations. Physicians such as Fernel and William Harvey believed that the body contained a divine element within it, be it spirit or the blood itself, which worked as a hinge joining the divinely created soul and the sexually reproduced body. 

Descartes believes that this disposition is the blood and heat located in the heart. However, Descartes’ account of the mind body union at conception runs aground when he asserts that this disposition is strictly mundane, featuring no divine element whatsoever, with the same structure as other kinds of inorganic heat.

I conclude that Descartes’ mind-body problem is in fact a problem of self love: why does the divinely created soul love this particular body? If time permits, I will discuss the importance of this interpretation in our understanding of the emergence of the idea of race in the late 1700's.

Students and Recovery is a support group for anyone struggling with any kind of addiction or obsessive behaviors, mainly around drugs and alcohol.

Being in recovery ourselves, we understand the difficulties acknowledging, surrounding, and breaking such behaviors, especially in college. Our goal is to let people know that they are not alone and that there is a way out. Our purpose is to pass this incredible gift of freedom on, as it was so freely passed on to us.

We hope you join us. Feel free to contact Andrew with any questions you may have.
