Battle of Ideas headline partner

At The Times we like a good argument. The passionate, rigorous defence of an idea is the stock in trade of our Opinion pages. That’s why so many of our writers and readers take part in The Battle of Ideas, a weekend of informed, but informal jousting among the intellectually curious. If you don’t want your arguments limited to 140 characters, prepare your thoughts and get ready to do battle. If you do, join in online at http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/system/topicRoot/Battle_of_Ideas/ or join the twitter feed at http://twitter.com/instofideas

"The 2006 Battle of Ideas did what it said on the tin: prejudices were punctured, common wisdom was questioned and original thinking honoured. The saying was coined in Texas, but I suggest that the Battle of Ideas adopts it as the conference motto: ‘sacred cows make the best burgers."
George Brock, Saturday Editor, The Times
