Some of the most important values are spiritual: they relate primarily to the needs of a person’s mind and emotions. Among these are art and friendship. This webinar discusses why a person focused on achieving values in reality needs art, and why a person committed to self-interest has an interest in having friends.
"Spiritual Fuel" is session five in a five-part series on the practical application of Objectivism.

ABOUT THE ATLAS SOCIETY:
The Atlas Society promotes open Objectivism: the philosophy of reason, achievement, individualism, and freedom. Our scholars work to further develop this philosophy born in the mid-twentieth century. We present the empowering principles of Objectivism to a global audience, and offer those principles as a rational and moral alternative in the marketplace of philosophical ideas.
We do this through a variety of programs, which include:
-Original scholarly research which further develops the philosophy.
-Academic training of young intellectuals.
-Publishing and commissioning influential books and monographs.
-Our rich multi-media website
-Original commentary and op-eds published in mainstream media.
-Speeches and media appearances.
