Have you ever wondered whether there can be good without God? Does love require you to sacrifice for your partner? Should you follow your head or your emotions? Do you have free will? Life is full of such big questions, and we all need to grapple with them.
For Ayn Rand, finding answers to these important issues is the task of a field most people see as irrelevant to their lives: philosophy. Rand held that philosophy plays a crucial role in our lives — and called her own philosophy of Objectivism “a philosophy for living on earth.”
Philosophy for Living on Earth is the theme of the Ayn Rand Institute’s new free weekly webinar series. The series explores some of life’s big questions from Rand’s philosophical perspective. And it does so in an interactive way: during each webinar, the audience gets the invaluable chance to ask questions live, interact with ARI experts, and even propose topics for future webinars. Recent topics have included: “Should I go by reason or by faith?” “Can there be good without God?” “Does love require sacrifice?” “What is self-esteem, and how do I get it?” You can catch up on past webinars, below.
