This course teaches the basic principles and methods of objective communication. We’ll treat communication as a science, as a skill that has certain objective principles that can be learned and applied to the improvement of one’s work. Through written assignments, lectures and writing analysis, students are encouraged to think critically about communication—their own and that of others. There are two parts to the course: Dr. Leonard Peikoff’s course “Objective Communication” and live classes on nonfiction writing taught by Keith Lockitch.
This is a two-quarter course beginning in Q4 of the 2023-24 school year and continuing through Q1 of 2024-25.
Prerequisites: To enroll in this course students must have completed an Objectivism course such as “Objectivism through Ayn Rand’s Fiction” or the “Objectivism Seminar”.
