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.'"

One of the best TV shows ever on PBS, but there are no DVD's of it. I've settled for the scripts.

Thought-provoking concept. However, became too preachy as it went on.

Great buy for anyone who likes history and for any student to understand the people in history. Make is personal
