    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"

    Leonard's Library of Congress Adventure

    By NIJamesHughes,
    What I want to know is why he was donating the manuscripts to the government and not to a private institute: i think Miss Rand would have much prefered that, rather than having her works in the hands of the Moochers and Looters.

    gender equality

    By chanticleer,
    Hi, I'm new to the forum. I would like to know if there is any objectivist literature on gender equality.

And if so, did she support working women, or did she feel that women should have a more traditional place (i.e. in the home)>

Their mission has four goals it strives for; "Your right to privacy - freedom from unwarranted government intrusion into your personal and private affairs." This seems to be an important aspect of Objectivism, as is this; "Your right to due process - fair

    Introspective evidence for measurement-omission?

    Let me begin by saying that I think AR's theory of measurement omission in concept-formation is correct. Sometimes it is difficult to figure out how measurement omission applies to a particular concept, but it is always possible in the end, and once you figure it out you can see that that is, in fact, how the concept is organized. My problem is specifically in regard to the possibility of introspectively observing your mind omitting the measurements during the formation of a concept. I abso
