Islands of Enlightenment

As any internet user already knows, most of what can be found on the net is garbage. Nevertheless, there are islands of enlightenment as well. and Academic Earth are two of them. offers a large video collection drawn from live events, lectures, and debates at universities, think tanks and conferences.

Academic Earth offers video lectures from leading american universities such as Harvard, MIT and Yale.

The videos below are good examples of that. The first one is a lecture on science and religion (the first of an interesting series), by Professor Courtenay Raia (UCLA).

The second one is an interesting discussion about Leon Trotsky on the TV show “Uncommon Knowledge”.
