Everyone is welcome to attend our first critical thinking discussion meeting this coming
Saturday, October 20 at
PG block at
The topic is "The Nurin Case: Child Molestors -- causes + solutions".
We will have lunch at mamak first, at 12 p.m. for those of you who want to "warm up" by hanging out with CT group members :-)
Sharwin will be leading the session and it will be very similar to our usual CT presentations, with one exception--everyone has to come prepared, having read 2 sets of readings, one given by Sharwin and another more analytical piece, given by me.
We hope that people will come and share their views, after having read. This way, we can have informed discussions. The readings are as follows:
There are many links to the Nurin case. Please don't just look at the CCTV and images, also try to read to get some background into the case. Sharwin will also come up with a timeline to make the discussions flow more smoothly.
Please read chapters 1 -- Motives, 2 -- There's No Cure, and 3 -- What's the appropriate response? You can see if some of the ideas given may or may not be applicable to the Nurin case and the Malaysian context.
Put on your critical thinking cap when you read and try to note down your agreements and objections to the readings as well. Basically, adopt your critical reading skills.
See you on Saturday!!
