The Problem with "Normal:" Loupette and the Moon
6:30 pm Wednesday, October 3rd 2012

- 105 Eden Street Bar Harbor, ME 04609
A conversation between Nancy Andrews, artist, Professor at the College of the Atlantic, and author of Loupette and the Moon and Walter M. Robinson, MD, MPH Distinguished Scholar, Center for Applied Ethics, Education Development Center, and Board Member of the College of the Atlantic.
In Walter M. Robinson's essay for "Loupette and the Moon," "Loupette and the Tryanny of the Average" he asks us to consider the assumptions upon which contemporary medicine rest. He brings to light the challenge set forth in Loupette and the Moon: that we see "the boundary between the normal and the pathological, between the diseased and the healthy...as contingent and therefore malleable."
