Mark your calendars:
Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged: Celebrating the Best Within Us
Please join us for a symposium offering contemporary perspectives on Ayn Rand’s magnum opus, both as philosophy and as literature. Speakers include Dr. Allan Gotthelf (University of Pittsburgh), Dr. Shoshana Milgram (Virginia Tech), Dr. Onkar Ghate (Ayn Rand Institute), and Jeff Britting (Associate Producer of the Academy Award-nominated documentary “Ayn Rand: A Sense of Life”). All sessions will include question periods, and an open reception with the speakers will be held immediately afterwards.
Date: March 4, 2009
Location: The University of Texas at Austin – ACES Auditorium (ACES 2.302)
For those of you in Colorado rather than Texas, the Philosophy Department at the University of Colorado at Boulder will be hosting a debate between Dr. Onkar Ghate and Dr. Michael Huemer on the Objectivist ethics on March 2nd from 7:30 to 9:00 pm in the Old Main Chapel, as part of its Think! series. I’m the graduate student promoter/organizer of the series, so I’ll be posting more details on this debate when I have them settled. It should be an excellent event.
