Description 

Two noted professors on opposite sides of the cultural wars come together and engage in "cooperative argumentation." One, a "Jewish, atheist libertarian" and the other a "mixed blood American Indian" bring to the table two radically different worldviews to bear on the role of colleges and universities in studying social and ecological justice. The result is an entertaining and enlightening journey that reveals surprising connections and previously misunderstood rationales that may be at the root of a world too polarized to function sanely.

"How refreshing to read a debate between a libertarian and a progressive where the participants are not trying to one-up each other or score debating points but simply trying to present an intellectually rigorous case for their philosophy, respectfully debate their differences, learn from each other, and hopefully find common ground." -Dr. Ron Paul, (R) Congressman, 14th District, TX
