FSU Philosophy Department to Host Lecture on Naturopathic Medicine

FSU Philosophy Department to Host Lecture on Naturopathic Medicine
The Frostburg State University Philosophy Department will present its Philosophical Forum, “Philosophy, Science, Traditional and Naturopathic Medicine,” a lecture by Dr. Chris Grontkowski, retired FSU professor of philosophy and provost. The forum will be held Wednesday, Sept. 15, at 7 p.m. in room 218 of Dunkle Hall.

The presentation will be followed by a free-ranging discussion between the audience and Professor Emerita Grontkowski, who was provost from 1997 to 2001.

The lecture explores the way in which the phenomenology of medicine and naturopathic medicine (relatively new fields in the philosophy of science and in medicine), with their inclusive or holistic approach, challenge traditional medicine and science by emphasizing the concept of the “lived body,” which exists and operates in a context that is mental, emotional and social as well as physical.
