Eros and Illness is a new book from writer and scholar David B. Morris. His work focuses on the lived experience of illness—but with a difference…

Morris draws on his experience as caregiver for his late wife, Ruth, who for some fifteen years struggled with earlier-onset Alzheimer’s Disease.

His approach, as it expands beyond a personal focus, requires exploring the intertwined relations between an individual “inner life” and the wider (interpersonal and cultural) experiences of illness.

Eros and Illness seeks to document this complex relationship by braiding together evidence from deliberately diverse sources—memoir, dance, theater, climate, ethics, and even the nudes of Amedeo Modigliani.

This event is presented by The Section on Medicine and the Arts of The College of Physicians of Philadelphia.
