The discussion will explore attributes of luck and its various influences in our lives. Excerpts from research for Stan Silverman’s second book, Mazel, will provide the basis of this lecture. Topics will include definitions of luck, numerology, cultural and religious symbols of luck, luck vs. skill, nature and nurture in the entertainment industry, and the part serendipity played in medical discoveries.
A native of Baltimore, Stan Silverman has been a practicing psychotherapist for a number of years. His first book, "Shadows and Echoes," provided an autobiographical review, beginning with his childhood in the 1950's, a tumultuous and transformational decade not only for the country but for himself, as well.
