Ford Hall Forum announces a May lecture by Yaron Brook:

“Apollo and Dionysus” Revisited

In 1969, Ayn Rand’s Ford Hall Forum talk, “Apollo and Dionysus,” addressed the near simultaneous events of Woodstock and the first lunar landing. Employing Greek mythology’s god of the sun and god of wine, she compared the awe-inspiring accomplishments of NASA’s Apollo space program to the famous three-day concert that has come to exemplify the counterculture of the 1960s and the “hippie era.” Almost four decades later, Dr. Yaron Brook, President and Executive Director of the Ayn Rand Institute, reflects on her words and takes a new look at our society’s drives toward individualism versus wholeness, light versus darkness, and civilization versus primal nature.

Thursday, May 8
