  • What do you think about the St. John’s curriculum?
  • What do you think about how tutors must be able to teach in any part of the curriculum?
  • What can we learn from the question Dr. Hintze chose to ask, out of all she could have explored with the students? Why do you think she didn’t rein the students in when they strayed from the original question?
  • Did you find the conversations in the seminars “invigorating”? Were you surprised and delighted with new ideas, as Dr. Hintze hopes students were? Do you think the camera made a difference in how the students spoke or interacted?
  • If you are considering teaching this or another book, would you take Dr. Hintze’s advice to set up a freewheeling study group first? How do you think that would help you to organize a structured course (if it would)? If you have ever conducted a study group that you later translated into an academic class, how did you go about that?
