Special to the
Opelika Observer

Dr. James T. Bradley, professor emeritus in biological sciences at Auburn University, will present his new book “Re-Creating Nature: Science, Technology, and Human Values in the 21st Century” for a special Brown Bag Lecture on Oct. 31.
Bradley will discuss modern science and modern life in ways that challenge any kind of reader: student, scholar, research scientist and, most especially, political decision makers.
Bradley is the immediate past W. Kelley Mosley professor of Science and Humanities and former director of the Human Odyssey Program.
He is the author of “Brutes or Angels: Human Possibility in the Age of Biotechnology.”
The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Auburn University (OLLI at Auburn) hosts its Brown Bag Lectures from 11:45 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Caroline Marshall Draughon Center for the Arts and Humanities, also known as Pebble Hill, which is located at 101 S. Debardeleben St. in Auburn.

The series is made possible by a grant from the Alabama Bicentennial Commission and is cosponsored by the Caroline Marshall Draughon Center for the Arts and Humanities. The program is open to the public at no charge.
