Academic Fact Fight
Drawing of two experts in debate battle
Two old professors ready for tough discussion – in front of a live audience
A good debate can be as exiting as a sports match or race, and it is a very old tradition that goes at least 2500 years back to when the now famous Greek philosophers (like Socrates and Plato) would meet up for at the local squares to challenge and street-battle each other on words about anything from eternal life to the nature of reality.
I hope the digital media won’t finish off this special academic endurance sport.
