Objectivism: The Philosophy of Ayn Rand I

At this meetup, we'll start on Leonard Peikoff's "Objectivism: The Philosophy of Ayn Rand"

    This brilliantly conceived and organized book is based on a
    lecture course given by Dr. Leonard Peikoff in 1976, entitled
    "The Philosophy of Objectivism." The lectures were attended by
    Ayn Rand, who helped prepare them and also joined Peikoff in
    answering questions. Ayn Rand said of these lectures: "Until or
    unless I write a comprehensive treatise on my philosophy, Dr.
    Peikoff's course is the only authorized presentation of the
    entire theoretical structure of Objectivism--that is, the only
    one that I know of my own knowledge to be fully accurate."

The plan is to cover about 20 pages per meeting - we can adjust later if this turns out to be inappropriate

So for this meeting, we'll cover:

Chapter 1: 
  Existence, Consciousness, And Identity As The Basic Axioms 4
  Causality As A Corollary Of Identity 12
  Existence As Possessing Primacy Over Consciousness 17
