How Do Your Habits Work For You? NJIT Assistant Professor Michael Brownstein Will Explain at ADHC Colloquium

Michael Brownstein, PhD, assistant professor of philosophy in NJIT's Department of Humanities, will discuss "How Your Habits Work for You: An Ethics of Automatic Behavior" at the Albert Dorman Honors College Colloquium Series on March 7, 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. in the Campus Center Ballroom A. In his talk, Brownstein will address in particular the regulation and reformation of automatic behavior: How do you control or change your “sticky” habits, like eating unhealthy food or the tendency to date the wrong kind of people?  In addition to examples like these, Brownstein will discuss implicit racism, post-traumatic stress disorder and other kinds of emotion-driven automatic behaviors.
