Here's a link to a debate became Malcolm Gladwell, the author of Blink, and Mark Kingwell from UofT. Maybe some of you have had Kingwell as a Prof? What was he like?
The debate centres around how to best deal with tackling societies problems, a rather broad topic. Gladwell attacking awareness raising programs vis-a-vis concrete action, supporting the latter as a much more effective method of tackling problems while Kingwell suggests that the root of the problem is... well just listen and find out. The debate gets heated by Canadian standards and its great to hear two great minds politely clash. Enjoy and feedback is welcome.
