The Ideas Industry
Chicago Council on Global Affairs, Chicago IL
Chicago Council
Influencing the marketplace of ideas used to be reserved for an elite class of public intellectuals with broad expertise and academic cache. Today’s thought leaders don't need doctorates or fellowships to reach large audiences of people hungry for new thinking. Rather, TED talks, social media, and online mediums can be used to create positions of expertise. Drezner argues that political polarization, heightened inequality, and eroding trust in authority have converged to create a new intellectual class. Join the Council and Drezner as he explains how the marketplace of ideas has changed in the 21st century.

The Socratic Idea that Reason Should Rule the Whole Soul and Its Freudian Fate
Wheaton College, 339 Blanchard Hall, Wheaton IL
Wheaton College
Dr. Lear will lecture, as Soren Kierkegaard might have put it, "among all we rational animals is there a rational animal to be found?"

What might he have meant by that? And how should we inherit his claim?
