In this recorded webinar, William R Thomas fills in the back story of Hank Rearden, the heroic steel titan of the movie Atlas Shrugged Part 1.

Drawing on Ayn Rand's novel, Thomas discusses the deep conflicts that run through Rearden's inner life and his social dealings, conflicts that are not fully brought out in the film alone. Rearden's errors include a willingness to bear others' burdens without limit, a moral relativism, and an acceptance of a radical dichotomy between mind and body.
