Objectivism: The Philosophy of Ayn Rand II

At this meetup we'll continue with 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."

For this meeting we'll cover:

Chapter 1: 

  The Metaphysically Given As Absolute 23
  Idealism And Materialism As The Rejection Of Basic Axioms 30

    This might be a good opportunity to examine and discuss objections to Objectivism's Axioms. So far, I only did a brief google and remember one claiming that "Existence exists" is just a meaningless tautology. Does anyone know of any other "intelligent" objections that we could discuss?
