An electrifying collection of thought-provoking interviews from recent broadcasts of CBC Radio’s Ideas. In these remarkable dialogues— most of them in the company of Ideas host Paul Kennedy — some of the great intellectuals of our time reflect, interject, and project on the course of human civilization, addressing topics such as social engineering and human rights, the directions of science and technology, the influence of art, music, and literature, and the quest for truth. Compiled and edited by Bernie Lucht, this volume explores the ideas of nineteen inspiring international and Canadian thinkers, including Louise Arbour, David Schindler, Jerome Kagan, John Gray, Lawrence Paul Yuxweluptun, Lenore Tiefer, Nat Hentoff, Theodore Dalrymple, Mark Lilla, and many others.
