  • Introduction: Dedicating—and Rededicating

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Over the last twenty-one years of The Journal of Ayn Rand Studies, we have lost key members of the JARS family.1 In 2005, one of our cofounders—the man with the vision to create this journal—Bill Bradford, passed away. This was followed by the deaths of original Advisory Board members Larry J. Sechrest in 2008 and John Hospers in 2011. David Mayer, who joined the Board of Advisors in 2012, died in 2019. And in June 2021, we were greatly saddened to learn that Steven Horwitz, another Advisory Board member from the class of 2012, lost his battle with multiple myeloma (Sciabarra 2021a). In addition to being a dear friend and a thought-provoking scholar, Steve was a contributor to two JARS symposia: our 2003 discussion ... Read More

  • The Rand Transcript Revealed

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: This essay offers a wide-ranging analysis of the first published facsimiles of key documents regarding Ayn Rand’s education at the University of Petrograd (1921–24). Analyses of these documents were published previously in The Journal of Ayn Rand Studies in two articles by Chris Matthew Sciabarra (1999b; 2005), later incorporated as the first two of three appendices to the second edition of Sciabarra’s book, Ayn Rand: The Russian Radical (Sciabarra [1995] 2013, 363–91) .1 In the third appendix of that second edition (393–99), later in Sciabarra 2017 and his lead essay to The Dialectics of Liberty: Exploring the Context of Human Freedom (Sciabarra 2019, 39–40 n. 2), Sciabarra replied to additional criticisms of his ...

  • The Lady and the Stamp

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The year was 1999. The day, 22 April. It was a chilly day to be by the Hudson, and a light breeze skimmed over the water. The sky was thick with clouds; the air was thick with fog. New York had experienced rain that morning. By noon, the rain had stopped.It was chilly inside the building, too. The venue, located on Show Pier 92 at Twelfth Avenue and Fifty-Fifth Street, stretched out into the Hudson, giving the stamp collectors inside it a view to river, and a view of the boats that sailed across it. It was the 1999 Spring Postage Stamp Mega Event hosted by ASDA— the American Stamp Dealers’ Association, Inc.—one of the largest stamp shows in the country.1A flyer for one of the show’s main events, designed by Roberta ...

  • Flourishing in a Risky World

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The big question that Kathleen Touchstone raises at the outset and seeks to answer in this book is: Why would a person rationally choose to risk their life if life is the ultimate value' As the book progresses toward an answer to that question, the author discusses a range of issues that are worth considering independently of their role in her subsequent consideration of the ethics of risk- taking. I focus here on some of her more innovative contributions.The idea that children have rights is not new, but Touchstone argues that the positive right of children to childcare is a natural right, “the source of which is based on human nature—a human’s rational faculty, specifically, its development” (Touchstone 2021 ...

  • The First Russian Biography of Ayn Rand

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Ayn Rand’s name is associated in Russia only with the United States, despite the writer’s obvious connection with her native land. Rand biographies that were published in the West have emphasized her life in the United States and have tended not to focus on her cultural and biographical connections with Russia: among these are the biographies of Jeff Britting (2004) and Jennifer Burns (2009). Barbara Branden (1986), Anne Heller (2009), and Chris Matthew Sciabarra’s Ayn Rand: The Russian Radical ([1995] 2013) pay more attention to Alissa Rosenbaum’s Russian past—as do some materials contained in McConnell’s (2010) edited oral history collection. A book on Rand has been published in Russia, by Anton Vilgocky (2015) ... Read More

  • Hunting the Pseudo-Philosopher: Perils and Pitfalls

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: May we perchance, in looking for the Sophist, have found the Philosopher in his stead'Some ducks are real; they fly, they paddle, they quack, they lay eggs from which further ducks emerge. Others are decoy ducks, painted copies in plastic or wood that serve only to lure the real article within range of the hunter’s gun.Just as not everything that superficially resembles a duck is really a duck, so not everything that superficially resembles philosophy is really philosophy. And like decoy ducks, pseudo-philosophy may very well serve to lure the unwary into peril, as Socrates and his students warned with regard to the Sophists two and a half millennia ago. Telling genuine ducks from decoy ducks is easy enough (at ... Read More
