    Objectivism Is The Everyman's Philosophy

    In the universe, what you see is what you get,

    figuring it out for yourself is the way to happiness,

    and each person's independence is respected by all

  • Rand's Philosophy in Her Own Words

    • "Metaphysics: Objective Reality"Nature, to be commanded, must be obeyed/Wishing won’t make it so." "The universe exists independent of consciousness"
    • "Epistemology: Reason" "You can’t eat your cake and have it, too." "Thinking is man’s only basic virtue"
    • "Ethics: Self-interest" "Man is an end in himself." "Man must act for his own rational self-interest" "The purpose of morality is to teach you[...] to enjoy yourself and live"
    • "Politics: Capitalism" "Give me liberty or give me death." "If life on earth is [a man's] purpose, he has a right to live as a rational being"

    Anyone interested in buying either Introduction to Logic or Objective Communication? The price for Intro to Logic at Ayn Rand Bookstore is $225, I'm selling it for $100. Objective Communication goes for $195. I'll sell it for $80. They are both in perfect condition (audio tapes) and have all the booklets they came with. I'm selling them because I need money. Send me an email at [email protected] if you are interested in buying.

    What are Rand's views of Aristotle's Prime Mover?

    By coirecfox,
    I have never read, seen, or heard about any instance where Rand address Aristotle's Prime Mover? Did she ever? If she didn't, why not?

    By The Owl,
    Hi. I hope it is okay that I registered even though I am not an Objectivist, or even a student of Objectivism. I'm simply going through some of Ayn Rand's texts, and figured doing some reading at this site might help me clear up any confusion I might otherwise have, from reading them. I might ask the occassional question in the "general" forum, but even then I promise I'll try to search for an answer BEFORE asking it. It was the fact that I couldn't get the search feature to function until I registered that prompted me to do so. Hope this is okay. Regards, Patrick

    Hello everybody, I owned and ran a fashion house for seven years, then worked as an assistant to a private architect for 3 years while I continued my private studies in philosophy and then worked as editor and designer of the feature/magazine section of a daily newspaper for 5 more years. I have recently relocated to Mumbai, India. My first and last love remain movies from when I was 4 to this day and forever. Currently I am engaged full time in medical recovery and film training. I first read "The Fountainhead" when 18 in 1980, immediately followed by "Atlas Shrugged" and various other works by Ms Rand and knew immediately that I had discovered the right philosophy. Looking forward to enjoying the list. All the best to everybody. Hema
