    I saw "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" tonight. It leaves me with a question about animal perception. Do Orangutans have peripheral vision?

    Glad you're back ! We've missed you and Barbara.
    The VI just means it's the sixth meeting covering this book. We started out really slowly so we'd have a solid foundation. It's the same book you read in the 90's.

    What does the "VI" mean in "Objectivism: The Philosophy of Ayn Rand VI"? Is "VI" a Roman numeral?

    I read this book twice back in the nineties. I hope the one we are studying is not a different version from the one I read.

    Sorry, I missed several meetings. My only excuse is I am sometimes to lazy to read my email, and that is not really an excuse.

    Sorry to miss out this week. I believe that we have come to the _essential_ presentation of Objectivism. We discussed reality; but philosophical empiricists grant reality - they just distrust logic; and so they advocate pragmatism. For two weeks, we discussed reason; but the rationalists are all for logic - they just distrust the evidence of their senses. Ayn Rand's Objectivism is a school of thought within the historical objectivist program, also known as rational-empiricism. Commonly, it is the scientific method.
