Festival strand: Special topical sessions

Throughout the weekend, we will have a special programme of informal conversations between Battle of Ideas speakers on topics in the news.

Hot off the press debates are full-length sessions.

Battle bites are short lunchtime discussions - grab a sandwich and join the debate.

All these special topical sessions are free and open to non ticket holders.

Saturday 18 October 2014
13.20 to 13.40 Conservatory

Julian Baggini, author, Welcome to Everytown: A Journey into the English Mind, and The Ego Trick
