The Nihilist Assault on Man and the Objectivist Defense
A conference featuring John Ridpath, Robert Mayhew, Tore Boeckmann
and Scott McConnell.
At the University of Oslo, Oct. 17-19.
If the ideas presented in Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged and The Fountainhead
interest you, the Oslo Objectivist Conference 2003 is your chance to
increase your knowledge of this revolutionary thinker and the applications
of her philosophy for living on earth. The conference provides excellent
Objectivist speakers, as well as the opportunity to informally discuss Ayn Rand's
ideas with other admirers from many
Our speakers will give you:
- a new look at the fascinating life of Ayn Rand, using never before published
material (Scott McConnell)
- an analysis of the revisions Ayn Rand made on the '38 edition of Anthem,
showing her development as a novelist and philosopher (Robert Mayhew)
- a new look on Modernism and its Nietzschean core to better understand the
root of today's nihilism, and therefore its cure (John Ridpath)
- an examination of the terrorist assault on Western values based on Ayn
Rand's identifications in the field of psycho-epistemology (Tore Boeckmann).
The conference will end with a moderated, audience-interactive roundtable on
the future of Objectivism, in which all the speakers will participate.
