    4pm Saturday April 21, 2018
    Second talk in our series for 2018.


    In his 1996 book 'The Clash of Civilizations' the American political
    scientist Samuel Huntington argued that cultural and religious
    identities will be the main drivers of conflict in the present
    century. In a bizarre twist, the rise of identity politics in the
    West has led to fundamental schisms within one of the main cultures
    identified by Huntington - the post-Enlightenment West. How is this
    reshaping political debates in Western societies?

    *Speaker:* Peter Baldwin
    <https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lpr8H_ktnhI>was a minister in the
    Hawke/Keating governments. He chairs the Blackheath Philosophy Forum.

    *Come and join us for a stimulating talk and lively discussion *at
    the Hall at the Blackheath Neighbourhood Centre, cnr Gardiner
    Crescent & the Great Western Highway, 4pm-6pm, followed by informal
    discussion at a nearby winebar.Admission $10 includes a big
    afternoon tea before question time. Hall is heated.All welcome!**
