Potluck chat: Drugs and Madness

Hi everyone,
This week we’re having an informal chat with Brandon Joyce from PIFAS about his recent lecture tour on Drugs and Madness.

Brandon will come to discuss drugs and madness as dialects of experience. That is, as worldviews that, despite any question of health, utility, or deceny, are still meaningful orders deserving of epistemological dignity and— if possible— a kind of translation into common intelligibility. Or something like that. There’s more to say, but let’s say it in person!
