Twice a month book discussion: Debuting Syed Hussein Alattas's "Intellectuals in Developing Societies"

Dear friends,

Komunite Seni Jalan Telawi (KsJT) cordially invites you to join a bi-monthly book discussion, during which books based on various topics and themes will be discussed. Selected chapters from the book will be discussed at any one time, and discussions for each book can range from two to more sessions, depending on the complexity of its contents.

To kickstart this event, we will look at chapters 2 to 4 of Syed Hussein's aforementioned book, and the focus of the discussion will look at the differences between intellectuals, intelligentsias, fools and 'bebal's/ dullards and how they make up the various stratas of societies, their roles and functions, with particular focus on Malaysia. However, the outlined focus is but a guideline so do not feel constricted by it. (:
