The Graduate Seminar in Objectivist Philosophy and Method is a week of lectures, discussions, and workshops designed for graduate students, junior faculty, and post-doctoral scholars of philosophy and related fields such as history, political science, and psychology. It is organized by The Atlas Society (TAS).
TAS founder David Kelley, Ph.D. and TAS Director of Programs William R Thomas, M.A were the lead instructors for this intimate and intensive week of intellectual development.
Instruction in 2008 focused on Objectivist conceptions of politics and law and the issues that surround them. The Objectivist approach will be compared with other views, including libertarian and mainstream views. Topics covered will include, inter alia, individual rights, the ethical basis of liberty, the justification of government, the institutional structure of government and law, legal standards and forms, and foreign policy.
The seminar is free of charge to qualified student and professional scholar participants. Participants were provided with a single room on the G.W.U. campus and a stipend to cover food expenses at the seminar. A limited number of travel stipends to a maximum of $300 are usually available, with preference in making travel awards given to those who apply early.
