In this final installation of the Ayn Rand Institute’s podcast series Inside “A Companion to Ayn Rand,” Don Watkins interviews Harry Binswanger, a member of ARI’s board of directors and author of How We Know: Epistemology on an Objectivist Foundation, on the chapter he contributed, “The Objectivist Esthetics: Art and the Needs of a Conceptual Consciousness.”

Is Ayn Rand a serious artist concretizing a timeless message or a writer of ideological sermons disguised as novels? Over at Objectivism: Who Needs It, my colleague Onkar Ghate explains why categorizing her as a “didactic fiction” writer is completely wrong.
In addition to the variety of talks and panels on philosophy, policy and self-improvement that will be offered at Objectivist Summer Conference 2016, we’ve added a comprehensive course on esthetics which will help you learn how to find value in art.
