Description

This is the second year of a two-year seminar offering a comprehensive overview of Objectivism, with a focus on understanding its core principles in the context of the history of philosophy and other thinkers’ answers to major philosophical questions.

The course will help you learn how to better understand various principles of Objectivism and philosophical issues more generally, including especially the fact that Objectivism’s principles often address long-standing philosophical issues.

Year 1 explored in some depth some of the key principles of Objectivism, especially in ethics, metaphysics, and epistemology. Year 2, the current course, focuses on foundational issues and the guidance Objectivism offers in epistemology, ethics, and politics.

The cash value of gaining a better understanding of the principles of Objectivism, including some of its advice about proper philosophical methodology, is that the philosophy can become more fully an aid to your own life: to your thinking, work and happiness.
