FTNCI 072: Objectivism Book Study (Week 14) — Objective Epistemology

The Objectivism Book Study is meeting through 2022 to study Objectivism: The Philosophy of Ayn Rand, by Leonard Peikoff.

Epistemology is the hill on which our civilization lives or dies. Accurate concepts and principles will make the world a better place.

For the New Christian Intellectual is a podcast and online project devoted to explaining this claim and helping Christians learn to think philosophically. That’s why we’re doing this ongoing study of Objectivism: the Philosophy of Ayn Rand, by Leonard Peikoff.

This week we are discussing pages 142 to 151, the section called “Intrinsicism and subjectivism as the two forms of rejecting objectivity.”

While these are abstract topics, as Christians in 2022, we can easily see their importance by looking at what purportedly Christian leaders are saying about how knowledge works.
