Debating behind a wall of fire – Leo Weese on debating in Beijing

张一鸣 (Zhang Yiming) from Fudan University, Shanghai, Manos’ debate partner, speaking at the finals. We don’t know if the debate made it to Chinese national television in the end. (Picture: Manos Moschopoulos) In simplified Chinese, the set of letters so strongly supported to replace a much more complex set of characters, the word China is written as 中国. The first sign meaning center, the second meaning country. The second character looks like the sign 王, meaning monarch (and also one of the most common last names), but can be also used to describe something precious, like a crown, that is sheltered by a wall. The translation of China being “The Middle Kingdom” or “Das Reich der Mitte” is an old one, but the introduction of the simplified characters started in 1952 by Mao ...

The weekend around in mid-April could have been named the European weekend of debating.

Cheese buffet, a new circuit and time traveller debates – Andreas Lazar on the Paris IV

Cheese buffet, a new circuit and time traveller debates – Andreas Lazar on the Paris IV Paris is very, very beautiful. Plus, it is the political, economic and social center of the French nation.

The about 150 participants of the Paris IV were offered hospitality and French cuisine, impressive technology and the art of partying plus a city tour – and all that in just under 45 hours.

On travelling to a very remote area – That was ZEIT DEBATTE Greifswald

“How far have you travelled?“is the starting sentence into any kind of conversation this weekend. It is the kick-off into the new season of ZEIT DEBATTEN series at Greifswald. Flirts, smalltalk - they all start with the "How long did it take you to get here" question. Indeed, the Hanseatic town by the Bodden, a bay at the Baltic Sea, is located in quite a remote area. However, about 65 debaters found their ways to Greifswald. Many of them split their journey - it took them a two-day's travel via Berlin or Hamburg to get to Meck-Pomm. To read more on ...

Shalom, Mme Speaker! A review on the Red Sea Open 2010

Shalom, Mme Speaker! A review on the Red Sea Open 2010 Getting into Israel is not so hard at all.

That is, at least if you wave around your Hebrew invitation the team of the Red Sea Open (RSO) preemptively sent out. Having discussed this tiny strip of land and its politics so many times, I was in additionally mentally thrilled to debate not only about Israel, but also ...
