This is a two-quarter seminar exploring Objectivism in depth. Its goal is to help you learn how to better understand and “chew” various principles of Objectivism and philosophical issues more generally. We will explore in some depth some of the key principles of Objectivism, especially in ethics, metaphysics, and epistemology. And we will consider a bit of what Objectivism teaches about proper philosophical methodology.

Prerequisites:To enroll in this course you need to have completed “Objectivism through Ayn Rand’s Fiction” or be enrolled in it.

Audit the Class

Auditing is a great choice for students who want to attend live lectures, ask questions, and participate in some discussions, but do not want to submit assignments.

A typical auditor is a busy professional or retiree, who finds our courses enriching and seeks to learn from our faculty as a hobby. You do not need to apply to audit, simply pay the tuition fee and you will be automatically enrolled in the course.

$1,580.00

Apply to be a Graded Student

Graded students in this course are expected to attend lectures and discussion sections, and also to submit assignments to the faculty. Assignments will be graded and given feedback.

To enter this course as a graded student, you must be accepted into the graded program of Ayn Rand University and achieve the necessary prerequisites. Your annual tuition covers as many courses as you wish to take. Most accepted students are granted scholarships, which substantially defray their tuition cost.
