A few small problems I have with Objectivism

Recommended Posts

Not at all.

This place seems a lot more level headed than O'ism Online, where people can't even seem to fathom the idea that Objectivism isn't an all encompassing system of perfection. Rand did basically nothing to solve the problem of causality and free will, and when she met things she didn't have strong arguments for just seemed to hold they were "self evident".

I am also more confused than ever about her epistemology, after getting a better understanding of it I can't understand at all why she had such major problems with Hume, Kant, Descartes and the logical positivists.

The more I read the more her philosophy seems to be direct realism, plus her own theories of free will and ethics, mushed together with the worst aspects of Nietzsche.
