The Battle of Ideas 2006

The Battle of Ideas is an annual festival of social, political, scientific, academic and cultural ideas.
This year it will take place at the Royal College of Art in London on (this) Saturday 28 and Sunday 29 of October.

As they put it themselves:

"Taking ideas seriously means they must be interrogated, argued for and fought over. The weekend makes virtues of free-thinking and lively exchanges of views. We aim:

· to showcase new arguments about the core issues of the day,
while avoiding getting bogged down in the minutiae of everyday policy

· to initiate open-ended discussions regardless of the demands for
immediate practical outcomes, which too frequently act as a brake
on innovative thinking "
