This is an ongoing live course taught in the Objectivist Academic Center (OAC), ARI’s premier intellectual training program featuring weekly classes conducted by videoconference. Visit to gain access to this exclusive content and begin participating in live classes!

The purpose of this course is to help you learn how to better understand various principles of Objectivism and philosophical issues more generally.

The course explores in some depth some of the key principles of Objectivism, especially in ethics, metaphysics, and epistemology. And it considers a bit of what Objectivism teaches about proper philosophical methodology.

The cash value of gaining a better understanding of the principles of Objectivism, including some of its advice about proper philosophical methodology, is that the philosophy can become more fully an aid to your own life, thinking, work and happiness.

The lectures in this course become accessible to enrolled students each week after 12:30 pm Pacific Time on Sunday. Discussion session recordings are available within 24 hours of the live class, and usually the same day.
