Graduate Seminar 2012: Foundations Of Morality
It will be an intense, intimate week of high level training in Objectivist philosophy and thinking skills.
This year's Graduate Seminar will focus on the theme of "Foundations of Morality." We will look at the facets of human nature that lie behind our moral sense and our ability to make moral choices. And we will consider the fundamental theory of ethics (metaethics) and the nature of self-interest and of virtue. We will examine challenges to the Objectivist view of man and ethics, and deepen our understanding of Ayn Rand's rational egoist ethical perspective.
Apply by May 18 for the best chance at receiving a travel stipend and in order to have plenty of time to prepare for the seminar. Applications will continue to be accepted through July 6, 2012 on a rolling admission basis, as long as space and funds remain available."
About our graduate seminars
The Graduate Seminar is a special week of lectures, discussions, and workshops designed for graduate students, junior faculty, and post-doctoral scholars of philosophy and related fields. David Kelley, Ph.D., founder of The Atlas Society, is the lead instructor for this intimate and intensive week of intellectual development. Instruction varies from year-to-year, but generally focuses on the content of Objectivism, the relation of Objectivism to non-Objectivist scholarly literature, the distinctive Objectivist method of philosophical analysis, and writing and speaking skills.
