    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

    Nate's Intro

    By neutropic_beatz,
    Hello, everyone, my name's Nate. I stumbled upon Objectivism not too long ago. It looks like it could be a helpful guide toward a better future for anyone who is diligent enough to use its ideas. I like to use the Scientific Method whenever I can. I've been able to apply it to different aspects in my life. But sometimes problems can manifest when more than one choice is rational. Then it becomes a matter of making decisions and holding them to be provisionally true. Unfortunately, time is s

    By John,
    Does anybody use the main website http://ObjectivismOnline.com. I think this would be a great place to submit articles and promote objectivism. Does anybody plan on using this site?

    Philosophy in the curriculum

    By danielshrugged,
    I'll go ahead and introduce this topic. To what extent should philosophy be taught in elementary, middle, and high schools? A few possible answers are: 1.) Not at all. Philosophy is very abstract, and students are not ready to consider topics such as being qua being and monadology until college. 2.) Philosophy IS abstract, and should be introduced slowly to students in other classes. In history, for example, the teacher should emphasize the role of ideas and give brief lessons about the r

    Hi everyone! my name is carrie and I'm new to this forum. I'm looking very forward to talking to and meeting other objectivists! Ever since discovering Objectivism, I feel born again. I have a new and totally wonderful perspective on life! I would like to become a psychologist and integrate the object. philosophy into my practice, as well as some of Anthony Robbins techniques. I'm intrested in hearing other Objectivist stories, and how they have integrated Ayn Rands teachings into their own live


    By MinorityOfOne,
    Wow, after having seen practically no posts on this website for a while after it was first announced, I gave up on it. Popped in last night, and what a nice surprise to see that it has come to life. I'm Matt. I study philosophy at Rutgers U., take classes at OAC, etc, etc. And I'm not a fan of writing big introductions, so I'll leave it at that. Hi to anybody who knows me on here, by the way... I see a few familiar names. :-) One technical question: any way to get automatic updates

    By Guest Anthony Carreras,
    Hello everyone. I'm new here and I plan on finding some time in my busy schedule to post here and talk about philosophy with you guys. My name is Anthony Carreras. I'm 22 years old and am currently attending my first year at Georgia State University as a graduate student in philosophy. I hope to one day be a professor of philosophy. My particular philosophical interests lie in the field of meta-ethics and the history of philosophy - mostly the ancient and modern periods. While those are my

    Hi all. I'm just wondering if anyone else here is at all interested in forensics. If so, what interests you most about it? My interest lies mainly in the techniques involved; I love listening to the explanation of specific techniques and seeing how certain cases benefited from them. The documentary-esque forensics shows on Discovery and CourtTV do a good job of that. Especially Forensic Files on CourtTV. Love that show. Also, for those who are interested in forensics, does anyone kn

    By Guest Steve,
    My name is Steve, I'm 18 and a freshman at Drew University in Madison, New Jersey. I was first introduced to Ayn Rand and Objectivism during my senior year in high school when I was assigned to read The Fountainhead (amazing huh?) Since then I've read Atlas Shrugged, Anthem, We The Living, Night of January 16th, The Virtue of Selfishness, Capitalism: The Unknown Ideal, Philosophy: Who Needs It, Return of the Primitive: The Anti-Industrial Revolution, Loving Life by Craig Biddle, and bits and p

    Hi, Jeff Franco is my real name and I am (or about to be in two weeks) a junior of Lakes High School in Lakewood, WA. I've lived in four states and two countries (my father is an enlisted, active-duty soldier who is currently deployed in Iraq). I was introduced to Objectivism by picking off the biggest book in my English teacher's book shelf. That book was The Fountainhead. I read it in November of last year and immediately after I finished it I bought Atlas Shrugged and managed to compl

    Any Rutgers Objectivists?

    By Atlas51184,
    Do any of you go to Rutgers University in NJ or know an Objectivist who does? I am going to be a freshman there in a few week, so... please tell me if the answer is yes.
