Based on a series of lectures given in 1983 by Dr. Leonard Peikoff, Understanding Objectivism offers a deep and profound study of Ayn Rand's philosophy and outlines a methodology of how to approach the study of Objectivism and apply its principles to one's life.Dr. Peikoff's course-offered in book form for the first time-should not be considered an introduction to Objectivism nor an alternative to his 1991 Objectivism: The Philosophy of Ayn Rand. The unique focus of these lectures is on distinguishing the right and the wrong methods for trying to understand philosophy in general and for understanding and validating Objectivism in particular.Michael S. Berliner, the renowned editor of The Letters of Ayn Rand, presents Dr. Peikoff's lectures in a reader-friendly format, highlighting Dr. Peikoff's interpretation of Objectivism's main ideas, including life as a standard of moral value, validation of individual rights, the evil of initiation of force, thr virtue of honesty, inductive knowledge, and contextual certainty.For the legions of readers who treasure Atlas Shrugged and The Fountainhead, and who savor cogent analysis and provocative discussion of Ayn Rand's thoughts and beliefs, Understanding Objectivism takes the stimulating study of Rand's philosophy to the next level.
