Oh Captain, my captain?


Welcome to "Arg, I'm a Dead Poet!"—a journey into the heart of moral cognitive development through the lens of the beloved film "Dead Poets Society." My name is Samuel Andrew Harper Jr., and this book is born from a pivotal moment in my own life, a moment that unknowingly set the stage for my later understanding of moral cognitive development. It was Hal Evans, a mentor from my youth in Texas, who first introduced me to "Dead Poets Society." He showcased clips from the film in our classroom, igniting a spark within me that would smolder for years.

At the age of 16, long after that initial viewing in my parents' living room, I came to realize the profound impact that film had on my understanding of morality, leadership, and the courage to live authentically. It was a realization that struck deeply, resonating with the lessons Mr. Keating imparted to his students—lessons about the importance of seizing the day and making your life extraordinary.


This book explores those very lessons and how they manifest within the film’s narrative to shape the moral journeys of its characters. As we delve into the ethical dilemmas and triumphs of Neil, Todd, Knox, and others, we also uncover broader insights into how our formative experiences and the mentors we encounter shape our moral compass. Join me as we revisit the hallowed halls of Welton Academy, uncovering the timeless messages that continue to inspire generations to think deeply about the values they hold dear.
