Hmm …

Dead Poets’ Society isn’t the movie you thought it was. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

Keating is motivated by the idea that his students should be taught not “what to think” but “how to think.” Again, does this sound familiar? The phrase “free thinkers” comes up repeatedly. But what happens when you learn “how to think” without ever learning *what to think*?

I liked the movie when I saw it, but that’s the only time I’ve seen it.
