Are you threatened by clarity?
This short extract from the Q&A after Richard Dawkins‘ presentation at the Adelaide Writers’ Week a few months ago. You can find the full video at Fora.tv (Meet The Author: Richard Dawkins).
This is nice though because it presents a lovely contrast between the confrontational language of the Aussie questioner and the mild reasoned response of Dawkins. So much for Dawkins being strident!
He gives a brief outline of the criticism he and others have received from bloggers about being too confrontational, describing the alternative “framing” approach. Dawkins concludes that both approaches are necessary.
I think I agree with him on that one. But I am open to other viewpoints.
Thanks to PZ Myers (Clarity : Pharyngula.)
