New York Objectivist Society Conference

3 posts in this topic

Dear Friends of NYOS,

As some of you know we have been organizing a first in many years NewYork Objectivist conference. More than intellectual nourishment for the soul of an Objectivist this event will raise money for Ayn Rand Institute and connect Objectivists who might not otherwise have crossed paths in the greatest city on earth.

We are planning a fundraiser dinner on Friday November 4, 2011 benefiting the Ayn Rand Institute and two full days of lectures on Saturday and Sunday November 5 and 6, 2011.

As the work of Ayn Rand Institute intensifies and spreads the ideas of Ayn Rand farther and to a greater number of people, now, more than ever, we, the students of Objectivism, should help secure a better future for ourselves by investing in an institute that works tirelessly to insure a better life in America.

Saturday and Sunday attendees will be immersed in an intellectual universe created by some of the best minds in their respective fields. Andrew Bernstein will speak on Villainy: An Analysis of the Nature of Evil, Harry Binswanger will speak on Psycho-Epistemology: How the Mind Operates the Subconscious, Yaron Brook will speak on Ayn Rand's Free market Revolution: How the Ideas of Atlas Shrugged Can End Big Government, Eric Daniels will speak on The Virtue of Judicial Engagement, Shoshana Milgram will speak on Ayn Rand's Top Secret: An Inspiring Original Screenplay about the Development of the Atomic Bomb, and Jean Moroney will speak on How Understanding Your Emotions Helps You Think Logically.

NYOS has chosen InterContinental Hotel New York Barclay as the venue for the conference. In our judgement we have integrated a great lineup of lecturers with a Five Star venue to complement the experience this event will offer. Six Hundred dollars is the price for a memorable three day event in the city Ayn Rand called home.

NYOS has planned for 100 people attending the conference. There is an increasing number of people interested in this event. To attend, you have to act quickly and let us know ASAP that you are attending the conference and sending us a check for $600 dollars.

From Andy Bernstein:

The NYOS founders have pledged $300.00 to fund a student attendee at the Nov 4-6 conference in NYC with its star-studded line-up of Objectivist speakers. There are many worthy Objectivist students who seek to attend. I strongly urge Objectivists to make this possible--pledge $300.00 to enable eager students to enhance their understanding of Objectivism. Contact us:
