This is an ongoing live course of Ayn Rand University, a new kind of university which provides advanced live courses in philosophy and communication from an Objectivist perspective. ARU courses include weekly live classes conducted by videoconference and taught by experts in Objectivism.

To join this or other ARU courses, sign up as an auditor, or apply to be a graded student at Ayn Rand University.

This is the second year of a two-year seminar exploring Objectivism in depth, with a focus on understanding its core principles in the context of the history of philosophy and other thinkers’ answers to major philosophical questions. Year 1 focused especially on ethics, metaphysics, and epistemology. Year 2, the current course, focuses on foundational issues and the guidance Objectivism offers in epistemology, ethics, and politics.
