Life changing lecture series

After reading the novels, I fell in love with the characters and wanted to look into non-fiction work about the philosophy of objectivism which led me to this. The unbelievably beautiful presentation by Nathaniel Branden will forever be a legend in my life. I think he speaks to the rational mind in any individual who is willing and able to think. If your life is riddled with contradictions and you find yourself lost in the world of chaotic politics of today, then you need a philosophy of reason. His voice and presentation style makes you admire every word and think consciously about it.

Enjoyable presentation.

I think it unfortunate that they dissociated, though I am sure there was good reason.

A fabulous and detailed series of lectures about Objectivism, the Philosophy of Ayn Rand

Reccomended! - I can remember clearly the day i discovered Ayn Rand. I picked up a copy of her book The Virtue of Selfishness, which was in the psychology section of one of the local libraries in the North East of England, I only had to read one paragraph to feel the excitement of knowing what I had in my hands was what I had been looking for all of my life, and having been surrounded by moronic socialist comments the like of 'The Labour party are for the working class...' and 'share your sweets out, you little' ... I knew that individualism was the special one that mattered to me, and to all, universally, as if an unwritten, unspoken foundation of justice....... So, here are the early lectures made by Nathaniel Branden and one lecture by his (then) wife Barbara capturing the formative years of this fantastic philosophic movement. I can't recommend it highly enough. If you are pro individual, or anti socialist, and looking for the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, this lecture series shows you how to get it..... Enjoy!
