18 Doughty Street

In an age when substance is given over to sound bite and free-thinking is marginalised by the politics of centrism, the Battle of Ideas challenges our modern-day intellectual orthodoxy by providing a forum where ideas stand or fall on their own merit.  18 Doughty Street is proud to support the Battle of Ideas as it pushes the debate forward.

"The Battle of Ideas is like a huge intellectual fair where a bewildering number of thinkers set out their stalls."
