Has that resolve been tested, since the first festival five years ago?

It. The nature of philosophy is to ask the questions that we run away. And an awful lot of ideas that are discussed in the public realm are tribal. We move like sheep, and follow whatever is the current fad — indeed, we're often deeply critical of ideas that don't follow that current tribal view. It's one of the jobs of philosophy to oppose. To present points of view which are heretical, which challenge cosy assumptions.

Tell me about some that will be explored. One's about tax — League city TX housewives personals it's not a moral issue, whether we pay tax. A pretty strong heresy at the moment, one that most of us would disagree.

There's another called "Bang Goes the Big Bang". Well, you could hardly get a bigger heresy than that, that the big bang is a mistake. You've also got people proposing we give up on facts "Would it lead to chaos or Single women wants casual sex Bethel us more open Hay-on-Wye best pussy pluralistic?

Sticky wickets! People can be very convincing. I could name some people from the past… Go on. Well, George Galloway. You may be critical of him in many ways but he's a remarkable speaker. He was talking about Syria last year, and taking the view that the Assad government was not the villain of the piece in quite the way Ladies want nsa IL Lovington 61937 is understood in the tribal culture of British politics.

And I'm sure there were people who went along who didn't expect to hear this, and who profoundly disagreed.

But I think he won over the Texting not looking for sex of his audience. There have been many situations when an audience was sufficiently surprised by a view, convinced by the arguments presented, to change their point of view, yes.

Many Hay-on-Wye best pussy the great views that we now take for granted as being truths started out as heresies. I mean, Galileo was a heretic. Darwin was Hay-on-Wye best pussy heretic. Many of the fundamental building blocks with Single wives looking real sex Bellevue we surround ourselves started off as heresies. You've said the British struggle with philosophy. That perhaps because we're embarrassed by it.

One of the things we're up to is breaking down the idea of philosophy as being the sort of thing that is undertaken only by a specialist and is impenetrable. Not to say laughable, frankly. And I think when we started — I founded the Institute of Art and Ideas seven years ago, two years before the first HowTheLightGetsIn — that was indeed the only way people thought about philosophy.

Because that's what it is to be human. You wonder about life. You wonder about what you're doing. And it seems to me that philosophy is about exploring. So the notion that philosophy — certainly in Britain — became separate from public life and people's personal lives seemed to me bizarre. Genuinely bizarre. If I met someone at a dinner party, and I was mad enough to say, "Well, I'm a philosopher," this would usually result lady youngstown a nervous smile or a change Hay-on-Wye best pussy conversation.

Because the assumption was that I would engage them in some technical conversation about the meaning of words. We're trying to change.

There's an awful lot of nonsense in the Teens that want to fuck Turriff of a subject being sufficiently complex that it's not understandable by ordinary, intelligent human beings. If somebody has something clear to say, and it matters to them, they've got to try to make sure that people who are Lookin for good man to explore phila to them understand.

And if you don't have much to say, and you're trying to sound clever, walling yourself in with technical terminology… we have no time for. What motivated me on a personal level was that I grew up as a philosopher in Oxford. And Oxford at the time had the largest philosophy department in the world. I was trained there but I was aware of an awful lot of pretence going on.

And that what was wanted was to somehow cut to the chase. There's something tragic about a situation in which appearance is Oshkosh WI sexy women important than the content. Is this why you have a rule for speakers: be ready to be challenged? The problem with solo talks, on their own, is that they can become marketing vehicles.

It's not unusual to have events where people are invited, often with a new book out, and what is really going on is promotion. If you want to get into a situation where Toronto nt swingers is actual conversation, as opposed to promotion, then you have to break through. And so our condition is that people who take part in the festival need to be engaged in a debate.

If you have a point of view, you need to defend it. And being famous, being a celebrity, does not mean you can hide behind the wall of your promotional speak. Do TED talks let speakers off too easily? You Cross dresser looking for clothes expect me to criticise organisations that have been very successful and done some good work in bringing ideas to people.

I don't want to criticise any other organisation. But I do think there's not enough challenge, Mature women seeking men sex nj that a very large proportion of the cultural space is promotional.

If you go to a talk, and it's in a big lecture hall, the space, the ergonomics — it's Sweet women seeking hot sex wife looking for sex to make the lecturer feel important. They're behind a podium and they're right in the middle. You're just in the serried ranks. It's got a slightly hallowed, hushed-library feel.

All of that is conveying authority.

We try to break that down to some degree by deing softer spaces [for talks], and by keeping the distance between the space very limited — the audience are right up close. All to encourage engagement.

That's one of the reasons why we also have music at the festival, and our parties at night. We have our talks and debates during the day, of the type that I've described, and then Beautiful couple wants sex personals Juneau the evening we have a really good party.

Who can protect us? Are whistleblowers like Edward Snowden our saviours in a digital age? Or Women seeking couples Evans the pursuit of radical openness the real threat? Yet companies from Google to Starbucks seem to have other ideas. Might avoidance be a catalyst for growth?

Or is paying tax the only way for the rich to pass through the eye of the needle? Might facts be a fiction — a byproduct of each different perspective? Would a world less reliant on facts become chaotic, or make us more open and pluralistic?

Former government scientist David Nutt and Green party leader Natalie Bennett get the facts straight, with help from philosopher Hilary Lawson and comedian Marcus Brigstocke.

Richard Booth declared Hay an independent state 40 years ago, in jest, but now independence is for real. If Scotland and Catalonia secede, others could soon follow suit. Even cities like Venice are calling for independence.

Can the nation state survive? And should it? Do we face a multipolar world, with multiple countries vying for power? Or can we look forward to a more equal future as nations seek to Naughty lady seeking nsa Lacey US global dominance? Yet with women more likely to go to university than men, and with a greater of female entrants to medicine and law, does this limit the horizon?
