Debating Matters Scotland / Northren Ireland Final

Donald Davidson had the pleasure of participating as a judge for the Scotland & Northern Ireland 2014 – 2015 Final of The Institute of Ideas Debating Matters Competition at the Robert Burn’s Birthplace Museum in Alloway on 3rd March. This contest for school students aged 16-19 is different from traditional debating; dispensing with points of order or points of information and attaching primary importance to the content of a student’s argument, encouraging young people to engage in real world debate, avoiding semantic game-play.
