For this week’s Podcast Question of the Week, Noah continues our discussion about The Sorting Hat, and the Hogwart’s Sorting in general.
When you get sorted, how much weight does your choice have in the matter? Is it end all, be all, or is it based on some objective traits that you have? And if it is, does that mean some people are essentially more intelligent than others? Is Jo making some commentary about intelligence existing in some perfect objective form? Is it based on where you want to be, or on something that you essentially have?
You can comment on this discussion directly below. However if you feel interested in the topic, feel free to submit a quibble or close read analyzing this question. Some submissions will be featured in a MuggleNet news post next week.
