    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

    Social Ethics

    Guest Marshall
    By Guest Marshall,
    What does Objectivism have to say about how you should act in relationships with others? To my knowledge, the only social ethic it expounds is an application fo justice: the trader principle, the precept that one should engage in exchanges for mutual benefit. Honesty is primarily a personal ethic; its social facet is secondary. The same is true of integrity. What does Objectivism have to offer regarding interpersonal competency? How should one treat others which one seeks to gain valu


    By Gabriel,
    I thought you'd like to visit my new site, http://www.individualism.ro/ This is the site where I'm publishing my essays, some of them very related to Objectivism, and where I keep a journal. (my latest post is about environmentalism). I warmly welcome any feedback you can provide.

    I'm an anarcho-Objectivist-constitutionalist, which means: Miss Rand made mistakes. Shocking, huh? http://www.organic-law.com/wolf.html

    Hello to this messageboard's members. -I am a video game designer, and plan to do that professionally. As of yet I've made next to no money from it but still consider myself in the learning phase of it. I've been designing games in some form or another for over a decade, and have run several online game design magazines. I went to Rutgers University where I studied biochemistry and psychology. -I found this community via danielshrugged/ishalltriumph, who I've known on Livejournal for s

    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

    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
