OCON 2020
May 15-16, 2020
by The Ayn Rand Institute (ARI)


We regret having to cancel our in-person event in Austin, Texas originally scheduled for June 17-21, but we look forward to welcoming you to OCON-Live.

One of the most inspiring traits of the heroes in Ayn Rand’s novels is their purposefulness. Think of Dagny Taggart’s fierce determination to complete the John Galt Line on schedule or to savor every last musical note written by her favorite composer. Or Howard Roark’s single-minded pursuit of his architectural vision, and his patient quest to figure out the “principle behind the dean.”

But while Objectivism provides the fundamental principles for living a life of purpose, it’s not always obvious how to apply those principles in practice. It’s one thing to read Ayn Rand and to be inspired by the depth and clarity of her ideas and by her vision of human existence—it’s another thing altogether to work to build the virtues and values of her philosophy into your life and soul.

What does it look like—and what does it take—to truly live a life of purpose?
