The Gap Between Knowing and Doing

Pop!Tech 2008 - Malcolm Gladwell

This week’s episode of TVO’s Big Ideas focuses on the massive gap between awareness and action. This is available as a podcast, which I’d recommend watching or listening to, and considering the difference between knowing and doing…

Noted University of Toronto philosophy professor and author, Mark Kingwell, and journalist Malcolm Gladwell square off in a lively debate about social change and how best to achieve it. See each present a short fifteen minute lecture, followed by an engaging and sometimes heated dialogue, moderated by Avril Benoit.

BIGIDEAS Mark Kingwell and Malcolm Gladwell.

Most relevant to this blog is Malcolm’s first fifteen minute talk where he discusses Al Gore and other doers, but the rest is interesting to listen to as well, if you are into philosophical discussions and verbal beatings between two great speakers.
