Homeopathy: Mere Placebo or Great Medicine?
Debate on November 27, 2012 at McGill University

This question has been harshly argued for more than 200 years. And for more than 200 years, the two positions in this conflicts have remained in a complete deadlock. It is astonishing to note that arguments on either have essentially not changed much over this long period of time. On one side, skeptics are claiming from a purely theoretical point of the view, “homeopathy is implausible. Therefore it can't work,” and any evidence in its favor must logically be flawed. On the other hand, we have generations after generations of homeopaths claiming from a purely factual point of view and with loads of evidence, “And yet, it works!”

Dr. André Saine, Dean of the Canadian Academy of Homeopathy, and Dr. Joe Schwarcz, Director of McGill Office for Science and Society, will face each other to debate this important question.
