South Florida’s Premier Cultural Event Series

Bioethics – New Frontiers in Neuro-science

Bioethics – New Frontiers in Neuro-science
Torben Riise, PhD.

Wednesday , May 23, 2007 – 7:30 PM
Location: Abanico Theater – Arts & Minds Center
3138 Commodore Plaza, Miami, FL
We like to think we are in control of our actions, but new results in neuro-science indicate that that may be wishful thinking. What does that mean for e.g. criminal behavior and society’s response to crime – and for our perception of being guilty? If we, by using biological intervention, can prevent or suppress criminal behavior, should we? And who should make the decision? If it can be used in crime, why not in other areas? In this thought-provoking presentation, Torben Riise, PhD, director of Center for Humanism, explores the frontier where science meets ethics. Be prepared to be challenged and to move some boundaries.

The Life and Music of Gustav Mahler

The Life and Music of Gustav Mahler
Morton Slakoff

Wednesday , May 16, 2007 – 7:30 PM
Location: Abanico Theater – Arts & Minds Center
3138 Commodore Plaza, Miami, FL
To Live, I Must Die” was the mantra and lifelong belief of Gustav Mahler, the quintessential Romantic composer. Much misunderstood in his own time, he claimed to compose for future generations. His music, much like the man, is filled with contradiction and juxtaposes the banal and the sublime, Klezmer inspired tunes and military marches mixed with some of the most beautiful music ever written. Mahler’s fascinating life and all-encompassing music will be explored in a multi media presentation by Mahler expert Morton Slakoff, author, critic and lecturer at FIU and UM on romantic composers. Whether you are new to or a long admirer of romantic symphonic music, this evening will kindle your love for this musical era.
