The 2008 Objectivist Summer Conference is going to be in Newport Beach, California (our back yard!), and is set to run from June 28 to July 6.

The 2009 Objectivist Summer Conference is going to be in Boston, Massachusetts, and will run from Muly 3 to July 11.

There will definitely be some competition for our summer conference $$'s in 2008. The Kelley group last met on the West Coast here in Orange in 2006, so I'm halfway expecting they will make 2008 happen somewhere further north, such as Seattle or Vancouver. Not to rule out San Francisco or San Diego, of course -- but I'd be very surprised if they came back to the L.A. area next year.

We'll see...

Objectivism, properly used, is a tool for living, not a weapon with which to bash those one disagrees with.

Roger;

I got the announcement too.

I think the fact that ARI can send information out almost a year before the event suggest some of the problems TOC has.

The attendance for their 2007 conference was over 500.

A weekend package* is being offered for OCON 2013.

This might be useful for working people in the Chicago area.

In my essay Beauty, Goodness, Life, I am comparing Rand’s esthetics to that of a Thomist, to those of Schopenhauer and Kant, and to those of philosophers today. This summer at OCON 2013, Robert Mayhew* is offering a course on Aristotle’s Poetics with an eye to Rand’s esthetics.*
