The Science of Hedonism, with Zoe Cormier.
Monday, Sep 28th
6.00pm – 9.00pm
Author Zoe Cormier’s first book Sex, Drugs and Rock n’ Roll: The Science of Hedonism and the Hedonism of Science, published by Profile, celebrates everyone’s favourite unholy trinity. Over 300 pages she explores how our supposedly “base” and “primitive” pursuits are not only crucial components of the human condition, but also how hedonistic impulses have informed our highest intellectual pursuits.
As a journalist her written work has featured in The Times, Vice, Wired, Nature, New Scientist, The Guardian, BBC Focus and many other publications. As a broadcaster and public speaker she has appeared on BBC Radio 4’s Start The Week, national television in Canada, and spoken live at music festivals, arts events and a wide variety of theatrical performances for a decade. She is also a co-founder of Guerilla Science, an events production company that brings science-inspired events to the locations you least expect to see them.
