Episode 7 - Shea Levy on Objectivism

In this episode I speak with Shea Levy about Ayn Rand’s philosophy of Objectivism, and what it has to say about ethics and epistemology. Topics we talk about include:

Note that the episode contains discussion of the ethics of suicide and vivid descriptions of painful deaths between minutes 36 and 47, followed by more discussion of the ethics of suicide up to minute 52. These sections could be skipped without making it too hard to understand the rest of the episode.
