Recent research in neuroscience suggests that political preferences reflect differences in the very structure of the brain. How does this affect our ability to defend our political affiliations on rational grounds?

The Levan Coffeehouse Conversations on Practical Ethics promote ethical discourse at USC by bringing together students and faculty from across schools to discuss ethical issues of practical importance. Come share your thoughts about ethical questions that matter. Free lunch and open dialogue.
