The Long History of Argument - New Series with Rory Stewart

Geoff Riley

13th July 2022

Rory Stewart has a new series on BBC Radio 4 which promises to be excellent enrichment for Politics students.

In the series, Rory and his guests explore the human phenomenon of arguing and why it matters so deeply to our lives. The Long History of Argument From Socrates to Social Media can be found here.

Argument became the way in which we answered the deepest questions of philosophy, established scientific rules, and made legal decisions. It was the foundation of our democracies and the way in which we chose the policies for our state.

Rory Stewart and Alastair Campbell are the joint hosts of The Rest is Politics which has quickly climbed to the summit of the podcasts rankings in the UK. The Rest Is Politics lifts the lid on the secrets of Westminster, offering an insider’s view on politics at home and abroad, while bringing back the lost art of disagreeing agreeably.
