warm up free will vs determinism

THEME ALERT!!!

Warm-Up: Free Will vs. Determinism

Free Will = the ability to make unrestrained choices

Determinism = the idea that we are restricted to one, unchanging path determined by pre-conditions (EX: child born into a poor family, will live a poor life).

Directions: Read the following quote from Chapter 1 and answer the questions below.

    • “We were born with a curse. It has always driven us to thoughts which are forbidden. It has always given us wishes which men may not wish. We know that we are evil, but there is no will in us and no power to resist it” (18).
  • Does this quote said by Equality 7-2521 represent free will or determinism? Explain why and use textual evidence.

Examining Power Structures: Are you…Determined or Free?
  • Do you know “The Pledge of Allegiance”?
  • Recite it quietly to yourself or in your head.
  • Have you ever stopped to think about the words? What they mean? What about the awkwardness/artificiality/unnaturalness of us all standing and repeating it without thinking every morning? Have you ever asked yourself why we do this?
  • Write down in your warm-ups section why YOU think we are required to say “The Pledge of Allegiance” every morning of your public school education.

  • “‘We are one in all and all in one.

There are no men but only the great WE,

One, indivisible and forever’” (19).

  • What does this quote remind you of?
  • Where is it found in Equality’s home?
  • What other forms of control do we see in Anthem?

  • THEME: The Collective vs. The Individual
  • Rand is asking us to re-think our definition of the word “One” and the word “We.”
  • For example, “We are one in all and all in one” (19).
  • Think of the syntax (word order) in that line. What do you notice?
  • How does Rand use this writing style to represent power structures in Anthem?
