Report What is 'reason'? in Questions about Objectivism Posted July 21, 2018 On 7/12/2018 at 7:23 PM, SpookyKitty said: This is one of my main disagreements with Objectivism. The description of human cognition that Rand and Peikoff give us sounds good on paper, but then when you actually try to go and use it... you can't. It simply doesn't work. To this date, I have never seen even a single detailed step-by-step account of an interesting and/or useful idea being formed and validated using the Objectivist method. Formal logic and probability theory are the way to go. This tells more about your introspective skill, than Objectivist epistemology.
