Great app for learning about philosophy of objectivism... and philosophy in general

If you are interested in smart, reasonable people thinking clearly about the deepest questions about human life, this app is for you. If you want to learn more about Objectivism, the philosophy of Ayn Rand, this app is for you.

The app is easy to navigate and find high quality source material on a wide variety of topics of interest — ethics, theories of knowledge, capitalism, logic, the role of emotions, human happiness and flourishing, education and teaching resources, etc. There are lecture courses, videos, and articles from Ayn Rand as well as scholars who have spent many years studying her philosophy. It is like a modern, digital reference library for top-notch Objectivist thought.

What a great app; I love it.

There’s a huge amount of courses available. In less than a week I’ve been able to listen to hours of lectures no matter where I am.

I’m starting with the basics and moving on to the more advanced and plan to eventually listen to them all. Things I learned years ago are better understood already.

Horribly buggy

I suppose to be fair, the fact that i can listen to the audio with my screen closed is a neat feature but this highly offset by the fact i can't finish a single course because of the number of glitches. I start a course and then a lecture will crash and I'll have to find a way to restart the lecture and by that time i have lost my spot. I am not sure why it is prompting me to download when all it seems to be doing is some 'pseudodownload' that takes 5 sec. If it were really downloading onto my phone, at least i could find it in my download folder and use it with another app or iTunes.
