Abstract:

Manuscript, in multiple hands, of the minutes of the I Don't Know Debating Society from its inception in 1894 till 1899. Each entry records a summary of the proposer's chosen topic of debate, the opposer's speech, and a record of the votes of the other members. Topics of debate include "That self analysis tends to the development of character," That the end justifies the means," and "That the man of science has been the chief agent in the world's progress." In a debate on whether civilzation is a failure, "Miss Wood" declares "that a great advance had taken place in the position of women in this century & that the respect given to women was always a sign of intellectual progress." The volume also records several remarks by society member G. K. Chesterton; other members include Frances Bloggs, Douglas Bennett Cockerell (1870-1945), and Reginald Brimley Johnson.
