Philosophy and Sense of Life

Julio Alejandro Freeman, Razi Ginzberg, James Valliant

Presented at: London Ayn Rand Meetup ARC-UK

Date: Dec 23, 2020

“A sense of life is a pre-conceptual equivalent of metaphysics, an emotional, subconsciously integrated appraisal of man and of existence. It sets the nature of a man’s emotional responses and the essence of his character.” — Ayn Rand, The Romantic Manifesto

Each of us have a sense of life, that informs and impacts our relationship with the world—it influences the kind of art we’re drawn to, the romantic partners we choose, our engagement with our work, and so on.

And our sense of life, in turn, is informed by our philosophical convictions and perspectives, held implicitly or explicitly.

How can we identify our own senses of life?
What contributes to the development of a certain sense of life?
Can we change our sense of life?
