Discussion questions for this session:

1. In these readings, both Keating and Catherine are each internally conflicted about how to think about Ellsworth Toohey. What is the nature of their conflict?

2. Keating is also conflicted about his relationship with Catherine, especially in relation to Dominique. What accounts for this conflict?

3. What do you think motivates Dominique's career and relationship choices?

4. Both Keating (173, 186) and Roark (197) at different points regard their actions as selfish. Do you think one or the other, or both, are right? Why or why not?
