ITOE, Advanced Topics | 2024

Lead Faculty
Harry Binswanger


“ITOE, Advanced Topics” is an intensive study of Rand’s theory of knowledge covering the later material in Ayn Rand’s Introduction to Objectivist Epistemology: Leonard Peikoff’s essay “The Analytic-Synthetic Dichotomy” and the Appendix to the second edition. (The 200-page Appendix consists of excerpts from three of the four “Workshops on Objectivist Epistemology,” that Rand conducted in 1969 -1971.) The course is a continuation of Dr. Binswanger’s course “ITOE” but may be taken independently of that course. This is an intermediate to advanced course (“300 level”) and presupposes successful completion of at least two other philosophy courses, which may include “ITOE”.

Prerequisites: To enroll in this course students must have completed an Objectivism Seminar course. Dr. Binswanger’s course “ITOE” is strongly recommended but not required.
