MSA Debate Society

1 MAR 2020

​Friedrich Nietzsche once wisely said, “There are no facts, only interpretations.” The Scientific Committee chose to make a simple interpretation – everything is debatable. That spurred the launch of the MSA Debate Society, a space for people to share their thoughts and perspectives on questions that plague the world around us. The introductory session was held on Wednesday 12th February 2020, with participation from members of all MSA committees. The central theme of the session was ‘Feminism’, with subtopics that explored whether women’s higher emotional capacities made them better leaders in the workforce and dismantled the myth that the idea of feminism is inherently sexist. The format of the session gave participants multiple opportunities to play devil’s advocate and argue against their own personal opinions. The thrill of good arguments reverberated through the room. It was a good start and the next session hopes to delve deeper into professional debate formats and challenging medical questions. The session was followed by a lighthearted argument on which came first – the chicken or the egg? Are you team egg or team chicken?
