Educating a Valuer

Matt Bateman, Rebecca Girn

Presented at: OCON 2022

Date: Jul 07, 2022

For Rand, the good life consists in being an independent, impassioned valuer. It is notable that Rand regarded an individual’s capacity to value as, in significant part, a developmental issue, and discussed at some length what parents and educators can do to thwart or nurture this capacity in a young human being. In this talk, we’ll argue that nurturing the capacity to value is a central function of a good education, and we’ll discuss how specifically an education can do this. In particular, we’ll look at Montessori’s excellent approach to this topic, in early childhood and far beyond.
