Objectivist Meeting on July 26

Hope everyone is having a particularly wonderful summer!

I'm taking time to enjoy as much as I can, and that includes hosting our next meeting this Saturday, 7/26 at 530pm. We'll be serving dinner, mint juleps, and an abundance of knowledge on our next honorable subject — Dr. Leonard Peikoff.

As I have been continuously mentioning Dr. Peikoff at meetings, and how great he is, I thought the subject would be worthy of more attention. I will be playing a small portion of his 1972 lecture on the History of Philosophy, where he demonstrates his brilliant intelligence, clear communication and quick wit.

On a side note, I am very happy that Ayn Rand had the wisdom to choose Dr. Peikoff as her intellectual and financial heir — especially intellectual. Without his defense of her philosophy during the crucial time after her death — facing down the attempted philosophical sabotage of Gnat, Babs and D Kelly — Objectivism would probably not have penetrated the culture in the powerful and positive way that it has through the Ayn Rand Institute. Dr. Peikoff is the admirable protector of the most important philosophy in the history of man, and made possible the solid foundation and integrity of Objectivism through which we better our own lives and spread rational culture.

In addition to the tape, Robert will be choosing a section to read aloud of Dr. Peikoff's book, "Objectivism, the Philosophy of Ayn Rand." As a special treat, we will be serving Dr. Peikoff's favorite food, AND I will have prizes on hand for a modest round of Dr. Peikoff trivia — his life and his works.

As always, please bring any articles of interest for our current events discussion. And if you have any Letters to the Editor or online posts that you would like to share, please bring them.

Our Objectivist study meeting schedule is set for every fourth Saturday of each month. If you live in southeastern Michigan and would like to know more, please email me. We'd love to meet you.
