  1. I am neck-deep in ARI's 50 hour course on "The History of Western Philosophy" taught by Leonard Peikoff. I am perplexed by an answer to one of the quizzes - perhaps someone can help me. I understood Peikoff to be quite explicit when explaining that Kant taught that true reality (what I take to mean the neumenal world as-it-is-in-itself) is outside the realm of direct consideration. Does he reach the conclusion that causality (via the categories) exists specifically because he has deduced it, and thus we can say (from a Kantian perspective) that causality exists in the world as-it-is-in-itself? I'm wondering if the use of the term "World as-it-is-in-itself" is confusing me here, as I don't know whether this is referring to the Neumenal or Phenomenal. I got this question wrong, even when consulting my notes closely! Argh...any thoughts on this?
  2. I did not see this posted anywhere on the forum so I thought you guys might find it of use. It's a succint but thorough summary of Leonard Peikoff's Objectivism: The Philosophy of Ayn Rand. http://objectivisme.nl/?page_id=2

  4. Hi, I have made a website on which everyone can create a tip jar for anyone. I have created four tip jars: Peikoff, for his Q&A podcasts: https://propster.me/tipjar/0c7s2ug The Objective Standard, for their great free podcasts and articles, and even previews. https://propster.me/tipjar/0c7s2y4 Alex Epstein for his podcasts on the fallacy of Green Energy: https://propster.me/tipjar/0c7s2o0 Here's one for ObjectivismOnline.net, as well ! https://propster.me/tipjar/0C7S3I9 The site speaks both USD Paypal, and Bitcoin. You can create more tip jars, for the kind of stuff that you like. The name "Propster" is something I thought a lot about. The site was originally called Online-TipJar, but I want to get away from the word "tip". I'm using the word "props", which stands for "proper respect". I think that word captures better the essence of why I'd want to contribute money to great projects/achievements on the net. Please use Feedback for requesting features. Boris
