‘The Academy was founded in 2000 to provide a forum committed to open and robust public debate in which ideas can be interrogated, argued for and fought over. We organise intelligent public debates, on controversial topics, and most importantly challenge contemporary knee-jerk orthodoxies. One focus of our work is to ensure that new generations look behind the headlines and avoid over simplistic conclusions on difficult topics. We are especially concerned about the “dumbing down” of debate, and to this end we organise a range of high-profile public events.’ Events have included an annual Battle of Ideas Conference held in London in the Autumn.

'Meets at 7.30 pm on the second Wednesday of each month from October until March ... Visitors welcome at all meetings ... Acton is now a suburb of West London about 5 miles from the centre, and well within the built-up area, but for the greater part of its history, consisted of only a small cluster of houses around the medieval Church of St. Mary's, providing refreshment for travellers on the road from London to Oxford; together with a smaller farming community at East Acton and a number of scattered farm dwellings ... The scene changed little until the 1840s when the village began to expand, but the greatest change began in 1859 when the Enclosure award, permitted the re-allocation of the strips in the common fields into blocks, releasing land for building the lower class housing required to keep up with the rapid growth of London, made possible by the extension of the suburban railways ...'

'The contemporary Adlerian approach to counselling and psychotherapy is based on the pioneering work of Alfred Adler, the physician and psychologist acclaimed alongside Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung as one of the "Big Three" founders of psychotherapy. A very popular public speaker in his time, his international lecture tours attracted a wide and varied audience, and many of the innumerable books that flowed from his talks and seminars are still in print today ... From the early 1950s the Adlerian Society has held monthly public lectures at this historic venue in central London [Conway Hall], where Alfred Adler himself lectured in the 1930s. The topics vary widely and are always relevant to the development and application of Adlerian psychology today. All are welcome (no need to book). Online tickets available.'
