Columbus Objectivist Meetup - Sunday, May 31st

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Greetings, forum readers. We will hold our third, nearly-fortnightly meetup in Columbus on May 31st. We will have a discussion of the topic of certainty and its contextual nature. Questions to address are: Does reason lead to certainty? What establishes certainty? How does knowledge advance from possible to probable to certain? What distinguishes the possible from the arbitrary? We will discuss Ayn Rand's answers to these questions. Please read chapter 5 of Objectivism : the Philosophy of Ayn Rand by Leonard Peikoff beforehand (though do come even you don't).

Also, see the Ayn Rand Lexicon entry on certainty: http://aynrandlexicon.com/lexicon/certainty.html

In summary:

Sunday, May 31, 2009

1:30pm - 3:30pm

Columbus Metropolitan Library - 3rd Floor board room

96 S Grant St

Columbus, OH 43215
