Socratic Seminar: Dagny’s Choice

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Strengthen your ability to read Ayn Rand and understand her most complex ideas yourself by attending our Socratic Seminar on this text. Our form of the Socratic Seminar is a learning methodology which, if properly implemented, fosters independence, develops excellent reasoning skills, and nurtures a sense of the rightness of individual liberty. Participation in these seminars significantly increases the participants’ abilities to think for themselves. In this seminar we will examine our understanding of the passage in Atlas Shrugged (Part III, Chapter II: “The Utopia of Greed”) in which Dagny Taggart is wrestling with the decision of whether to join John Galt’s strike or return to work at Taggart Transcontinental. We will seek to learn what Rand means, her evidence for her arguments, how these arguments relate to her other writing, and what implications this passage has for our lives. All participants are expected to have read this passage before the session and to bring a copy with them.
