The Lectures of Dr Leonard Peikoff
Are you interested in when Dr Peikoff gave each of his lectures? Do you want to listen to them chronologically? That's what I wanted to do, too!
Unfortunately, these data are not overly easy to find. Not all of the ARI Bookstore's product pages have the date of the lecture series, so sometimes you just have to order the lectures and see what date is printed on the tapes or CDs. Sometimes that date isn't right though, as it may be a year later than when the lectures were given!
Through some research, asking on HBL, and correspondence, I have compiled the following list.
|1970||Modern Philosophy: Kant to the Present|
|1972||Founders of Western Philosophy: Thales to Hume|
|1974||Introduction to Logic|
|1976||The Philosophy of Objectivism|
|1982||Principles of Grammar|
|1985||Philosophy of Education|
|1987||Objectivism: The State of the Art|
|1990||Advanced Seminars on OPAR, Part I|
|1991||Advanced Seminars on OPAR, Part II|
|1992||The Art of Thinking|
|1993-94||Eight Great Plays - As Literature and As Philosophy|
|1994||Writing: A Mini-Course|
|1995||Judging, Feeling, and Not Being Moralistic|
|1996||Unity in Epistemology and Ethics|
|1997||Objectivism Through Induction|
|1997||The Survival Value of Great (Though Philosophically False) Art|
|1999||Poems I Like and Why|
|2001-02||Induction in Physics and Philosophy|
|2004||The DIM Hypothesis (by telephone)|
|2007||The DIM Hypothesis (OCON, Part I)|
|2010||The DIM Hypothesis (OCON, Part II)|
And don't forget about his books!
|1983||The Ominous Parallels|
|1991||Objectivism: The Philosophy of Ayn Rand|
|2012||The DIM Hypothesis|
In the 1960s, Dr Peikoff gave his history of philosophy courses under NBI, but those lectures contained less material than did the versions he gave in the 70s. The lectures were recorded, but they are no longer available. The 1976 course was also given live a second time in 1978.
All the rest of the lectures should still be available, with the possible exception of the 2004 version of DIM. It was available for free on ARI's web site for a while, but I think it has since been taken down.
