Book Club: Philosophy Who Needs It by Ayn Rand

Time for our next book! With this one we're getting back to a basic question in philosophy which is; why do we need it at all?  Here Ayn Rand establishes her view of philosophy's role in human life and the implications that role has for applying philosophy to a myriad of topics.

This book's chapters are largely independent, so feel free to come to a meeting even if you have missed some.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
