The Heart of Learning
CHAPTER 6: WHAT'S SO SOCIAL? CHANGE, INTEGRATION AND SOCIAL RESILIENCE
How should society in general, and Singapore society in particular, deal with social change?
This is the question Professor Tan Ngoh Tiong from the S R Nathan School of Human Development asked in his essay, “What’s so Social? Change, Integration, and Social Resilience”, which constitutes Chapter 6 of the book, “The Heart of Learning”. The anthology of essays was published to commemorate the autonomous university status of SUSS.
Here, the professor shares his views on how Singapore can navigate its way through choppy waters ahead.
