Overcoming Barriers to Romantic Love

Once a member of Ayn Rand’s inner circle, Nathaniel Branden has played a prominent role in spreading the ideas of Objectivism, including founding the Nathaniel Branden Institute. He is also a prominent psychotherapist and is well-known for his work establishing the self-esteem movement in psychology.

In this video from a libertarian meetup in Long Beach, California, in 1984, Branden gives a lecture on romantic love, fear, self-fulfilling prophecies, happiness, and a variety of other topics. He also takes questions from the audience.
