The Philosophic Roots of Feminism
Jul 02, 2000
Despite its origins in the struggle for women's suffrage, feminism has become a major voice for statism. This course looks at the irrational philosophic premises motivating each of the major strains of feminist theory, to see how each flows from the rejection of objectivity. Mr. Garmong discusses the anti-concept "sexism," as well as conceptual errors that make people vulnerable to feminism. Finally, he discusses Ayn Rand's view of sex roles: what sexual differences do––and don't––imply.
