Twelve jurors gather to deliberate on their verdict in a murder trial: and the case seems a foregone conclusion. But one by one, they start to change their minds, following one juror's dogged scrutiny of the evidence. This Henry Fonda classic raises philosophical questions about the conditions for good - and bad - inquiry and deliberation. What personal or social facts can hinder clear-eyed evaluation of the evidence? And what norms govern good inquiry?
