Levinovitz will explore ‘how faith in nature's goodness leads to harmful fads, unjust laws, and flawed science’
Alan Levinovitz, PhD, author and associate professor of religion at James Madison University, is set to speak at the 2020 Animal Agriculture Alliance Stakeholders Summit. In his keynote address, Levinovitz will examine the intersection of philosophy, religion, and science, focusing especially on how narratives and metaphors shape beliefs. Levinovitz will offer attendees a glimpse into his upcoming book, Natural: How Faith in Nature's Goodness Leads to Harmful Fads, Unjust Laws, and Flawed Science, which illuminates the far-reaching harms of believing that natural means "good," from misinformation about health choices to justifications for sexism, racism, and flawed economic policies. Attendees can purchase Levinovitz’s book during registration.
