By Leonard Peikoff
Although the topics follow the organization of the book, these seminars (formerly titled "Objectivism: The Philosophy of Ayn Rand") are not a re-reading of Leonard Peikoff's Objectivism: The Philosophy of Ayn Rand (OPAR), but are an advanced "chewing" of its ideas. Dr. Peikoff explains the reason for the precise wording of key formulations, defines striking new integrations among the philosophy's complex elements and, above all, offers a detailed analysis and defense of his interpretation of Objectivism's logical structure. Filled with penetrating questions from long-time Objectivists, and Dr. Peikoff's brilliant answers to them, these seminars include an abundance of material not covered in OPAR.
Recorded in 1991.
