  1. Read the section entitled "Self as a Cardinal Value" from here: http://www.objectivistcenter.org/objectivi...etaChapter4.PDF Any thoughts on the terminology of Self vs. Self-Esteem?
  2. I follow the Internet Infidels Discussion Forum: http://www.iidb.org/vbb/forumdisplay.php?f=64 It has some Objectivists, and is the highest ranked philosophy forum on the web: http://rankings.big-boards.com/?sort=alexa&p=all
  3. Full text of "Philosophy: Who Needs It?" by Ayn Rand: http://gos.sbc.edu/r/rand.html
  4. There was a thread posted on the HST forums in response to this thread: http://www.hypertrophy-specific.com/cgi-bi...4048;st=0;r=1;& Read Bryan Haycock's comments in particular. And I'm not going to get into a flaming war now, since I've already made my positions clear on Mentzer & HIT.
  5. These may be of interest, though I haven't heard them myself: http://prodos.com/archive015understandingdruguse.html http://prodos.com/archive016understandingdruguse.html
  6. Hey. I'm president of the CMU Objectivist Club, which is obviously in Pitt. E-mail me @ [email protected] if you're interested in participating.
  7. Dr. Hurd on the Libertarian Party: http://capmag.com/article.asp?ID=3877
  8. I agree w/ this completely. I learned more in my internship over the summer (by myself) than I did over the last two years of college.
  9. Who here is a current or former OAC student? P.S. Any idea what the new curriculum is going to be like?
  10. Umm, I never wrote that quote - please attribute the quote to its proper author. This goes for everyone: please make an honest attempt to understand HST and moreover basic exercise science before you make incorrect claims, e.g. the above two posts. And once again, this is a philosophy-specific forum, not an exercise-specific forum, so can somebody please kill this thread?
  11. What do you think of David Kelley's textbook "The Art of Reasoning?" How does it compare to Leonard Peikoff's course "Introduction to Logic?"
  12. They also cost $210, so the notes are better than nothing Any idea when he'll publish the material? Also, how much physics is in it?
  13. I thought it might be interesting to have a discussion on induction. Here's someone's notes on Peikoff's lecture course to get us started: http://www.aynrandchat.com/induction.html From the notes: "Definition of induction: the primary process of reaching knowledge that goes beyond perception." So to start this discussion off, does primary in this context mean "first" or "main?" I would assume it means the latter, because doesn't concept-formation come first? Or could it mean the former, since isn't concept-formation a form of induction? Please discuss
