Your Chance to Debate Dave Gordon on Ayn Rand and Objectivism

In Los Angeles last week, I had the opportunity to hear David Gordon speak at The Society of Libertarian Entrepreneurs. He seemed very excited about the online course he is going to be teaching for the Mises Academy, Ayn Rand and Objectivism.

I got the sense that he has done a lot of thinking and preparation for the course. He gave me a short overview of the course and my guess is there will be some fireworks.

Writes David about the course:
I am not an Objectivist; but I'm not attempting in the course to advocate a competing philosophical theory of my own — though it is hardly a secret that my own political views are Rothbardian. Rather, I wish to evaluate the arguments that she presented. The course is primarily designed for those who would like to learn the essentials of Rand's thought; but I encourage Objectivists and others who already have strong opinions about Rand to enroll in the course and debate the issues with me. Few activities are as much fun as philosophical arguments.

More details about the course are here.
