In yet another stupendously good talk the combination of Denis Dutton, a professor of philosophy and the editor of Arts and Letters Daily (also stupendously good) with the wonderful artist from RSA Andrew Park, whose work has featured on here more than once. (Link to the Daniel Pink one I loved so much, and here is the one to the Ken Robinson talk.) There is another one on this blog too, but I have temporarily misplaced it. Will put in a link when I find it here is a very interesting way to spend 18 minutes.
There is a bit of weirdness in the html code for the video so just ignore this bit down here and head to the video.
