The DC Objectivist Salon is a group of individuals in the Washington, DC metro area dedicated to the serious study and practical application of Ayn Rand's philosophy of Objectivism. The DCOS is a proud supporter of the Ayn Rand Institute ( and we encourage our members to take advantage of their many online resources.

Our primary activity consists of essay and book discussions.  Most of the readings we discuss are by Ayn Rand and other prominent Objectivists, such as Leonard Peikoff, Harry Binswanger, and Peter Schwartz.

If you have read Rand's novels but little else, we encourage you to check out her nonfiction books such as The Virtue of Selfishness and Philosophy: Who Needs It.  Another great resource is Leonard Peikoff's book Objectivism: The Philosophy of Ayn Rand.

We're 173 Students of Objectivism
