Part 4 of the special Thursday, June 19, Objectivist Education Program Introductory Course: “Objectivism: A Rational Philosophy for the Hero in Your Soul”

Because of Objectivism’s profound commitment to the individual, it has to approach political philosophy with radical questions: What makes living in a society valuable to an individual human being?

This lecture will explore these questions and the principles with which Objectivism responds to them: the principles of individual rights. It will discuss the related issues of the need for government and for objective law.
