Morality of Freedom
Morality of Freedom
A new, free offering from ARI Campus
In this one-hour lecture, Onkar Ghate discusses the moral-philosophic ideas that led the Age of Enlightenment to uphold freedom and the rejection of this political ideal by later thinkers. Using examples that include Socrates and Isaac Newton, Dr. Ghate explains the ideas behind Enlightenment thinkers’ rejection of authority and embrace of reason—which ultimately led to the founding of America. He then explores why these ideas lost traction in the nineteenth century and how, through Ayn Rand’s philosophy of Objectivism, we can revive them. Enroll now.
