Future Cities Project

“The Battle of Ideas is an essential event for anybody interested in the ideas that may shape the intellectual landscape of the 21st Century. Cosy orthodoxies are interrogated rather than indulged, and intellectuals and experts are forced to justify their ideas. Most impressive is the air of intellectual vibrancy that surrounds the festival. We are always pleased to be a part of this important event.”

Martin Earnshaw, Future Cities Project.

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