  • What do you note about the ways in which Hannah Hintze leads this seminar?
  • Why do you think she chose the opening question that she did?
  • What do you note about the ways in which students treat the text?
  • If this is your first experience of a college-level seminar, what did you think? If it is not, how does this one compare to others you have attended or led? Does rarely getting a clear answer to the main question frustrate or intrigue you?
  • How would you describe the way Dr. Hintze led the discussion? Do you think she got the discussion she was hoping for? How would you have led differently? What do you think of the question she chose to discuss?
  • How did the students interact with one another? Did you notice a particular point that got them thinking in a different direction, and if so, what was it?
  • What do you note about the ways in which students interact with one another? Based on the students’ conversation, what was the pharmakon for, and did it help or hinder Telemachus? (If there are multiple likely options, name them.) If you have done your own reading, does the conversation line up with your own ideas on the topic?
