The Objectivism Book Study met through 2022 to study Objectivism: The Philosophy of Ayn Rand, by Leonard Peikoff.
In this session we explored the Objectivist understanding of the hierarchical nature of knowledge.
The reading was:
Ch. 4 – Knowledge as hierarchical 129-141
“Concepts have a hierarchical structure… The higher, more complex abstractions are derived from the simpler, basic ones (starting with the concepts of perceptually given concretes).”
–Introduction to Objectivist Epistemology, pg. 32.
