The Idea Business

Universities and efforts to fend off restrictions on ideas.


Bill Bowen and Michael Schwartz are champions of “ideas.” As educators they’ve come to understand the importance of maintaining and developing the broadest storehouse of ideas on university campuses. But if you ask them, the “idea” is under threat. In their talk, they’ll discuss the importance of “thinkable thoughts” on campuses and how imperative they are to solving human social, technical and environmental problems.
