At CCNY, debates raged in the school's cafeteria, later continuing in the pages of influential academic journals. Alan Rosenberg narrates. Shown at the 1997 Boston Jewish Film Festival.

Demonstrates the inherent excitement of intellectual debate, even though astute viewers will read a few books to fill in the ideological gaps.
