The INSTITUTE FOR OBJECTIVIST STUDIES (the original name of David Kelley's organization, after a parting of the ways with Dr. Peikoff, some 23 years ago) has had a rebirth as a separate entity, not affiliated with The Atlas Society, and with its own agenda for re-invigorating the academic development of Objectivism as a philosophy and movement. The new IOS intends to conduct its own seminars, which appear to be primarily for Graduate level students (see the link to their discussion, below). .Several prominent TAS officers and frequent speakers or participants are on its Advisory Board, as well as others not associated with TAS. The site has a rather extensive series of blog-style discussions of the history and current state of the Objectivist, "movement," along with presentations on what the new IOS is for and what it intends to accomplish - .such as Academic Mentoring, and its own series of seminars, as well as creation of an online Objectivist Bibliography and Annotation projects. Founded by Professors Irfan Khawaja and Carrie-Anne Biondi, the new project has a decidedly academic orientation and is aiming for the creation of a much larger presence of Objectivist-oriented intelligentsia on college campuses. Readers of Objectivism Online, and other internet Objectivist-oriented forums, will likely find their observations stimulating - and they invite comments..
