For conference attendees who are fans of Ayn Rand but new to her philosophical system, Objectivism, we invite you to join ARI’s Objectivist Academic Center instructors for a new course specially designed for beginners. In each class, one of ARI’s experts will introduce an aspect of Rand’s philosophy and discuss its significance and application with attendees. Why is philosophy important? What makes up a philosophical system? What is Objectivism? How does it apply to your life? Sign up for one class or for the series—each day features a stand-alone class; the last session is an open Q&A with Onkar Ghate on Objectivism and philosophy in general.
