endless sea of headlines circling around, making bandwagon causes the
new norm. What happened to critical thinking? Questioning received
wisdom is a timeless philosophical tradition. Suddenly social media
makes polarized conformity the new normal. The world is much more
complex than black and white. This Thursday the 24th help us bring some
colour and life to these issues: the new sex-ed curriculum, the border
between free speech and hate speech, and the intimate links between medical research and the pharmaceutical industry.
