Atlas Intellectuals is a 90-minute monthly discussion group hosted by The Atlas Society Senior Scholar Stephen Hicks, Ph.D.. Each discussion draws on content from Professor Hicks’ most recent topic covered in the Atlas Intellectuals courses above, ranging from Capitalism, Socialism, Slavery/Reparations, Envy, Objectivity, Altruism and more. In addition to reviewing Ayn Rand’s perspective, Professor Hicks introduces thinkers from a variety of viewpoints –– from Milton Friedman to Karl Marx.
Courses and their subsequent discussion seminars are scheduled on perennial and contemporary themes—Money, Socialism, the implications of Robotics and Artificial Intelligence, Slavery and Reparations, Objectivity, Envy, Capitalism, Individual Rights, Egoism versus Altruism, and more. Each course includes twenty-four pieces of content, ranging from memes, videos, podcasts, texts by Ayn Rand, curated intellectual and scholarly texts by Objectivist and other thinkers from a variety of perspectives.
Executive Summaries are also provided for the longer items to give those who are busy an overview of the content and/or to highlight the key themes for those who will pursue in-depth reading.
