a SFL Virtual Reading Group


Ayn Rand’s novel Atlas Shrugged is one of the primary works that inspired contemporary libertarianism, due to Rand’s vision of free-market capitalism as a moral ideal and her analysis of anti-capitalist cronies and politicians. Atlas is also a thrilling mystery story with a complex plot and fascinating characters. This reading group will cover Part I of the book, with the options of parts 2 and 3 later. We will discuss the meaning of the events, the motivations of characters, and the portrayal of a world in decline. Depending on the interests of participants, we will discuss philosophical, politico-economic, and literary features of the novel.

    • Discussion Leader: David Kelley, Founder and CIO, Atlas Society
    • Meeting Dates: Sundays 3pm EDT, 10/9 – 11/13
