1969: Apollo and Dionysus, a talk by Ayn Rand
Ayn Rand Centre TV, United States Monday, August 3, 2009


In 1969, Ayn Rand was among the special invitees to witness the launch of the Apollo 11 mission to the moon. She delivered this talk later that year at the annual Ford Hall Forum. The ARC TV has now placed the video of this lecture on the internet.

This lecture, delivered by Ayn Rand at the Ford Hall Forum in 1969, concretizes the issue of reason vs. emotion via an analysis of two contrasting events of that year: the glorious achievement of the Apollo 11 moon flight and the mindless mud-wallowing of the Woodstock rock festival.

The Q-&-A topics include: the irrationality of the Vietnam War—and of the students protesting against it; and why Ayn Rand devoted time to social commentary.
