The First John Galt School in Montenegro
The Lucha Institute in cooperation with The Ayn Rand Institute and Balkan Objectivist Centre organises the first School of Objectivism in Montenegro.
The programme consists eight lectures that cover the core principles of philosophy, objectivism as philosophical direction, the influence objectivism has in today’s world, but also the ways young people can use the views of objectivism for self-development and progress in their careers. The programme has been implemented successfully in Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Macedonia, and now for the first time, it will be performed in Montenegro.
During the programme, critical philosophical, moral and political concepts will be addressed in the context of the objectivism. The philosophy of objectivism was set by an American author of Russian origin, Ayn Rand in the mid-twentieth century, defining it as a philosophy of reason, that is, “philosophy for life on Earth.” Objectivism, which emphasises the primacy of logic and reason, has become popular with a broader audience through the Ayn Rand novel and has proven to be very influential to date. It has influenced many celebrities, from entrepreneurs, artists, to the most prominent politicians.
The programme includes lectures as well as creative sessions that include film projections and reading sections where the practical implications of this philosophy will be specifically addressed. The programme is especially useful for those who want to examine the different traditions of the political philosophy of liberalism, as well as those who want to better understand social and political processes and outcomes in Montenegro, the region and the world.
All students of the School of Objectivism – “Who is John Galt?” Will have at their disposal professional literature, access to books from the library, recommendations for visits to essential conferences in Europe and the USA, and a certificate of successful attendance.
