Intellectual Humility: The Unforgivable Curses (Book 4, Chapter 14)

Book 4 Chapter 14 HPST Series 2

This week, Vanessa and Matt explore the theme of Intellectual Humility in Chapter Fourteen of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, with some help from Dr. Daryl Van Tongeren! They discuss Snape's cruelty towards Neville, the logic behind Barty Crouch Jr. / Moody's approach to teaching the unforgivable curses, and the early days of S.P.E.W. Throughout the episode we consider the question: how can we use the concept of Intellectual Humility to be more "right-sized" in our everyday lives?  We're taking 2 weeks off, but we'll be back in the new year reading Chapter Fifteen, Beauxbatons and Durmstrang through the theme of Creativity.
