Monthly Meeting

The primary activity of each meeting will be the review of an essay written by Ayn Rand applying Objectivist principles to aspects of modern culture.  Our method is to "chew" a particular essay -- to review, to discuss, to increase the depth of our understanding of the principles and observations it contains.

We are engaged in exploring a series of essays on the connection between knowledge, values, and emotions, including the role played by romantic art in the development and sustaining of rational values.

The subject essays in this series are:

Art and Moral Treason (Ayn Rand, 1965)

The Psycho-Epistemology of Art (Ayn Rand, 1965)

Philosophy and Sense of Life (Ayn Rand, 1966)

Art and Sense of Life (Ayn Rand, 1966)

What is Romanticism? (Ayn Rand, 1969)

Art and Cognition (Ayn Rand, 1971)

All (except the last) are reprinted in The Romantic Manifesto.

The September meeting will complete our review of "Art and Cognition."  Starting with the October meeting we will examine the essay "What is Romanticism?".

    I believe I have had a copy of "The Romantic Manifesto" which did
    include the article "Art and Cognition". (Of course, I had already
    read it in the magazine).

    So sorry I haven't been able to attend lately. I am flooded with work! Can barely believe it. Miss you all and hope you are well.
