Dr. Lamy bases his reflection on the topic of critical thinking from his perspective as a scholar, as well as on a clip of testimony by Lieutenant General Romeo Dallaire, a Rescuer, who describes his experience with assistance efforts at the start of the Genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda. Dr. Lamy points to the importance of critically thinking through the information we receive and the steps one can take to ensure that multiple sources and points of view are sought out before making conclusions.
