December 2014 Supper/Discussion Meeting
Wednesday, December 3rd
6:30PM - 9:00PM

The Moral and the Practical
- Onkar Ghate at OCON 2012

A crucial error in ethics is to pit the moral against the practical. What are some of the sources of this error? What are some of its existential manifestations? What are some of its effects on thinking, including subtle ones? What, properly, is the relation of the moral to the practical? What is the place of this issue in ethics and in life?

The PURPOSE of the Ayn Rand Society for Individual Rights of Naples (ARSIRN) is to provide educational venues for studying the ideas underlying individual rights, particularly their moral foundation as first identified by Ayn Rand; to provide a social environment for like-minded individuals; and to raise funds for the Ayn Rand Center for Individual Rights (ARC)

ARSIRN's GOAL is to provide sufficient, on-going funding for ARC to make Naples a regular stop for speakers from the Ayn Rand Center and the Ayn Rand Institute.

The Society's STRATEGY is to reach out to the broader southwest Florida community through public events, including one major fund-raising event each year.

ARSIRN is open to all readers of Ayn Rand's fiction and/or nonfiction who are sympathetic to her views and wish to pursue their implications. To join with us just complete our support form.

NOTE: We are centered in Naples, Florida, deep in the southwest part of the state. We have members from Port Charlotte, Sarasota, Tampa and St. Pete . . . and welcome others — in spirit if not in body.
