Partial screen capture of the narrative describing the Nathaniel Branden Memorial event, Feb. 22, Los Angeles. To register or for more information, click on the Eventbrite link in my post, above.


Please join us for a memorial gathering to honor Nathaniel Branden and celebrate his life and achievements, sponsored by The Atlas Society, John and Danis Fickewirth, and Nathaniel's family.

The gathering will be a cocktail-style reception, with brief remembrances by those who knew Nathaniel and his work, with memorabilia from his long and productive life. Refreshments will be served.

Nathaniel was a long-time associate of Ayn Rand and helped systematize and promote her philosophy of Objectivism. He launched the Nathaniel Branden Institute in 1958. His course The Basic Principles of Objectivism was the first systematic statement of the philosophy—and the first of many courses offered through NBI. With Ayn Rand, he edited The Objectivist Newsletter and The Objectivist magazine, where his early work on psychology was published.

After a break with Rand, Nathaniel continued his career in psychology, as an innovative therapist and teacher of therapists. His many books and lectures earned him worldwide respect as a pioneer on the subject of self-esteem. He fought against those who identify self-esteem with narcissism—both those who denigrate self-esteem for that reason and those who promote narcissism in the name of self-esteem. Through his research, teaching, and publications, He argued that genuine self-esteem is earned by pursuing the essentially Objectivist values of rationality, integrity, productiveness, and responsibility.

Please join his family and his many friends and admirers February 22nd to honor his memory. He opened new roads in psychological theory, and new paths in life for his many patients. We look forward to seeing you.

Kyrel Zantonavitch has suggested that TAS video record this event. A significant number that might have wanted to attend, but will be unable due to time and distance constraints, would be interested in at least seeing the event on video. Although it was planned to only be an afternoon event, I have heard that it may be expanded. Regarding the video request, anyone interested might want to send a note to The Atlas Society.

By the way, attendance was listed as limited. Anyone interested should go to the Eventbrite link and register, a.s.a.p.!
