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.
In this course we will cover a variety of topics, including the Frankfurt School and the New Left, environmentalism, feminism and gender studies, post-structuralism and postmodernism, postcolonialism, intersectionality, and how all of the above have paved the ground for CRT itself, which will be our focus in the last weeks. We will examine what all these ideas actually are, where they come from, what is their impact on the culture, and what are their strong points and shortcomings.
