In 1921, in a Munich beer hall, newly appointed Nazi party leader Adolf Hitler gave a Christmas speech to an excited crowd. According to undercover police observers, 4,000 supporters cheered when Hitler condemned “the cowardly Jews for breaking the world-liberator on the cross” and... Читать далее

Which countries have had the most successful migration policies and why?

спрашивает
Anastasia Krasnoperova
Prof Danny Dorling, Halford Mackinder Professor of Geography, University of...  · 9 января 2017
It’s remarkable how little research is available comparing the success of different countries’ immigration policies.

Why is Marx still relevant today ?

спрашивает
Guro Mamphoria
Sheffield Political Economy Research Institute, speri.dept.shef.ac.uk/author/and...  · 4 января 2017
You will often see Marx described as a moral philosopher and Marx himself identified with this label, but I would say he is best described as a political economist. Marx, like a few other great thinkers, operated at the intersection of philosophy, economics and politics. The study of... Читать далее

Why don't lone wolf terrorists hunt in packs?

спрашивает
Guy Lloyd
Professor in Contemporary History at University of Teesside School of Design...  · 24 января 2017
Although I’ll discuss it here, I generally tend to try not to use the phrase ‘lone wolf’ too much for terrorists because it can valorise or glamorise them. We call them something like ‘solo actor’ or ‘self-directing’. But whatever we call it, it’s a phenomenon that has been associated... Читать далее

To be or not to be, is that the question?

спрашивает
Steve Turnbull
Associate Professor of Philosophy at Warwick University @GuyLongworth and...  · 8 февраля 2017
I’d begin by saying that the question seems to be intended as ambiguous. On one reading, it’s a question about suicide: “Given that I’m alive now, how much longer should I live? Should I end things now, or should I allow things to take their course for a bit longer?” Given what we are... Читать далее

What are the major global trends in architecture today, and what does this tell us about society?

спрашивает
Olga Zeveleva
Senior Lecturer in Architecture, Northumbria University, Newcastle. @Northumbria...  · 13 января 2017
Firstly, these are very broad questions, so I’ll define some parameters, then I’ll outline a couple of scenarios and finally I’ll give you my opinion. I’m going to assume when you ask about “trends in architecture” that we are talking about the design of buildings. That might sound... Читать далее

спрашивает
Steve Turnbull
Absolutely, if it is global, and pays each adult human willing to sign a social contract an equal amount from the same place.

Why should I be a good person?

спрашивает
Andrew Male

Associate Professor of Philosophy at Warwick University @GuyLongworth and...  · 29 ноября 2016
Maybe we should start by asking, What kind of answer are you looking for? You might say, What an odd question. Surely, everyone fundamentally wants to be a good person and it would be odd to pursue the question further.  But we also need to think about the kind of individual who’s... Читать далее

Can documentary photography ever change a political situation?

спрашивает
Andrew Male
Photographer, writer, Honorary Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society...  · 12 декабря 2016
Yes. Absolutely. If you look at the history of photojournalism, Roger Fenton, who documented the Crimean war, was one of the first photographers to bring home pictures of casualties but, as with the pictures of the American Civil War where you see fields of dead bodies, the time lapse...
