Excellent Video Of Thomas Sowell Views On Intellectuals And Society

Mark Perry on Carpe Diem has very kindly provided in his blog post, "Thomas Sowell on 'Intellectuals and Society'," the weblinks to an excellent five part video interview with Thomas Sowell about his new book, "Intellectuals and Society". Each segment is approximately seven minutes in length.

I highly recommend the full 35 minute interview, but especially the second segment on income inequality for those interested in the topic.

Since these are the days of portable listening and viewing devices, I am providing two additional weblinks to the interview, to supplement those available on Mark Perry's blog.

One link is to a single audio MP3 of the entire interview. The other link is a single Quicktime video of the whole interview, as opposed to the five segment files available on Carpe Diem.

The audio link for listening or download is here.(click to listen or right click and save link or target as to save to computer for transfer to a listening device). The audio file is 42MB.

The Quicktime video link for viewing or download is here.(click to view or right click and save link or target as to save to computer for transfer to a viewing device). The video file is 178MB.

Thomas Sowell is the Rose and Milton Friedman Senior Fellow at The Hoover Institution at Stanford University.

Enjoy. It is an excellent interview.
