About this title
From dust jacket notes: "The complete scripts, will illustrations, of the amazingly successful PBS-TV series.....The first pair of shows of the Second Series brings together the Marquis de Sade, Cesare Beccaria, the Dowager Empress of China, Tz'u-Hsi, and Frederick Douglass discussing ideas and experiences concerning which they have special knowledge. The second pair of programs includes Martin Luther, Voltaire, Plato, and Florence Nightingale. The third quartet consists of Sir Francis Bacon, Socrates, Emiliano Zapata, and Susan B. Anthony. Karl E. Meyer of Saturday Review has summed up the general critical, academic, and public response to 'Meeting of Minds' in saying 'the script is wonderfully entertaining....Crazy as this grouping may sound, it works...we ought to have more such jeux d'esprit on television.'"
