This month we invite you to join us for an even more interactive – and experimental – CPC than usual.
People of good will know this ancient principle of civil debate. But how to apply it? In the contemporary world, there’s a great deal of concern about how public discussion and debate are being affected by social media, by the ways in which scientific evidence is used and abused, and by the spread of fake news and ‘alternative facts’.. How do we devise procedures that let the exchange of ideas flow? Is it rules we need or just successful habits? In this month’s CPC, regular attendee Simon Fletcher invites you to explore and experiment with the rules of debate. Come along and help demolish some straw men!
