Does it make any difference to the world what a writer does? Can he write autonomous and avoid the expectations of the outside world, or does he have to take a position concerning social reality? P.F. Thomese opens the debate with a plea for the independent mind, for the autonomous, introvert writer. His opponent is the young philosopher Bas Haring, who by actively adressing a wider audience tries to make philosophy part of daily life. Dutch spoken.
