Open vs. Closed Objectivism part 2

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

David Kelley founded The Atlas Society to promote Objectivism as an open system of ideas—defined by its core principles but open to further development, refinement, and revision if needed. Orthodox Objectivists hold the opposite view that the philosophy is closed: it includes all but only the ideas that Ayn Rand put forward. In these sessions, Kelley and TAS CEO Aaron Day will discuss the philosophical and psychological dimensions of this debate and its implications for the future of the Objectivist movement.
