I'm announcing today a new series for people interested in learning more about Philosophy and Objectivism. We are calling it our Summer Brunch Series: Basics of Objectivism. Join us at the Gin Mill on May 22nd at 11am.
Our first session will discuss Ayn Rand's speach given at West Point called "Philosophy: Who Needs It?". Here is a breif description from ARI's website:
In March 1974, Ayn Rand faced the improbable task of lecturing on the crucial importance of philosophy—to the graduating class of West Point. She succeeded magnificently: she attracted three times the expected attendance, she elicited an enthusiastic ovation, and her lecture was reprinted in a new philosophy textbook published by the U.S. Military Academy. Relive this memorable occasion, and rediscover the irresistible intellectual power of Ayn Rand.
