How do we arrive at unbiased and well-informed opinions about issues? The process of critical thinking can guide us to better decisions in every day life. In the first of four sessions, we will examine and practice this method of clearer analysis. Using the film as a starting point, we will examine how critical thinking is applied to jury deliberations. Presented by Norm Isaacson, Valerie Lucznikowska and Roger Moss.
Twelve Angry Men (1957) Starring Henry Fonda and Jack Klugman. The defense and the prosecution have rested and the jury is filing into the jury room to decide if a young man is guilty or innocent of murdering his father. What begins as an open-and-shut case of murder soon becomes a detective story that presents a succession of clues creating doubt, and a mini-drama of each of the jurors' prejudices and preconceptions about the trial, the accused, and each other. 96 min.
