The St. John’s College Objectivist Club will present a live talk: Ayn Rand’s Epistemology is a Moral Matter by Craig Biddle on Tuesday, October 5, at 7:30 p.m. in the FSK Auditorium.

Epistemology is the study of how knowledge is acquired and validated; it identifies what a person should and should not do with his mind if he wants to keep his thinking tied to reality. But good thinking is not an end in itself; one does not strive to think well for the sake of being rational. The ultimate reason to think well is to live well; good thinking is for good living. Epistemology is, in this respect, a moral matter; it is the science of the selfish, life-promoting way to use one’s mind. This talk explores the moral nature of epistemology, the principles involved in this integration, and their implications in daily life.

Craig Biddle is the author of Loving Life: The Morality of Self-Interest and the Facts that Support It and of the forthcoming Good Thinking for Good Living: The Science of Being Selfish. This event is free and open to the public. Donations are welcome, but not required. For more information, contact club president Daniel Schwartz at
