  • Atlas Shrugged Explored

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: When I started reading this book, I found myself getting irritated at what I felt was too much repetitive material. But I soon found out that the fault was mine and not Younkins's. Exploring "Atlas Shrugged": Ayn Rand's Magnum Opus was not written as a book. The five chapters were all written for various occasions, but with roughly the same objective: to introduce the reading or listening audience to Objectivism, especially Atlas Shrugged. Chapter 1 is from Younkins's book Exploring Capitalist Fiction, published in 2014. Chapters 2, 4, and 5 originally appeared in this very journal (December 2014, December 2015, and December 2017, respectively). Chapter 3 was given as a talk in 2007 in Washington, D.C., to mark the ... Read More

  • Introduction

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In the fall of 1999, The Journal of Ayn Rand Studies began publication as the only nonpartisan, interdisciplinary, double-blind, peer-reviewed, biannual periodical devoted to the study of Ayn Rand and her times. In 2013, JARS began a fruitful collaboration with Pennsylvania State University Press. Our reach has grown beyond anyone's wildest expectations. We are indexed, in whole or in part, by nearly two dozen abstracting services across the humanities and the social sciences and are reaching thousands of global readers due to our availability on a variety of e-platforms—from JSTOR and Project MUSE to the new Scholarly Publishing Collective. And all its issues will always be on the Portico dark archive.Over these ... Read More

  • Archival Discoveries Related to Ayn Rand's Residences in Saint Petersburg
           (Petrograd/Leningrad)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The last decade became the time of the discovery of several important documents related to the Russian and Soviet period in the biography of the writer and philosopher Ayn Rand (Nikiforova and Kizilov 2012; 2018; 2020; Sciabarra and Solovyev 2021). Important Russian documents related to Ayn Rand's biography were published earlier in the 1990s and 2000s by Chris Matthew Sciabarra (1999; 2005; [1995] 2013, 363–91). Most of these discoveries were held in the archives located in Saint Petersburg and Simferopol, Crimea. This article presents a few important and hitherto unknown archival documents found in Saint Petersburg.Ayn Rand, born Alissa Rosenbaum, lived in Saint Petersburg from her birth in 1905 until January ...

  • Objectivism and Libertarian Political Thought: A Comparative Introduction

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: This article aims to provide a comparative introduction to Ayn Rand's philosophy of Objectivism by illustrating how it stands in the libertarian scenario. It relates Rand to other libertarian authors, identifies common features and differences, and provides a better understanding of how she has affected the history of libertarian ideas and the libertarian movement. Although major contributions in this direction have already been made (see, in particular, Sciabarra and Sechrest 2005, and the rest of the Spring 2005 issue of The Journal of Ayn Rand Studies), I am confident that the examination of non-Austrian libertarians—such as Robert Nozick and, obliquely considered, Herbert Spencer—and the employment of more ...

  • Chosen or Proven Ethics'

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Finding a fully validated,1 true philosophical system is the guiding star of many philosophers. The base of a true metaphysics and epistemology starts with the validated axioms of existence and consciousness,2 but the base of a true ethical theory does not need an axiomatic foundation.3 It can be proven true.This paper examines two approaches to the foundation of ethics. One is based on a foundational choice yielding a "Chosen Ethics." The other is derived from metaphysics, epistemology, and the facts of reality yielding a "Proven Ethics."Ayn Rand's philosophy of Objectivism bases its ethical theory on a foundational choice as described by John Galt in Atlas Shrugged: "My morality, the morality of reason, is ...

  • Error, Free Will, and Freedom

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: This essay examines error and external freedom and error and internal freedom. Concerning external freedom, it suggests that errors serve as a derivative basis for natural rights. In the relationship between internal freedom and error, it overviews four groundbreaking papers published by Stephen Boydstun in the mid-1990s. It reviews some of the related literature published since the 1990s by Elio Conte and Andrei Khrennikov.According to Douglas Rasmussen and Douglas Den Uyl (1991, 105), humans require rights in order to have a moral space within which to flourish. These natural rights are negative for adults (adults are the focus herein). Rights are based on man's rational faculty. They are needed for man to have ... Read More

      Abstract: It could be that no adequate account of self-interest can be found which will allow us to speak coherently about self-sacrifice. If so, our talk of self-sacrifice will have to be given up.In previous writings, with the help of ideas from Aristotle and Ayn Rand, I have offered metaphysical and epistemological arguments in support of compatibilism, the logical harmony of determinism and volition. The name for my version of this view is value determinism, the corollary of which I refer to as conditional volition, and I have presented them as a challenge to the false alternatives of orthodox mechanistic determinism, indeterminism, and orthodox libertarian free will (this last including the predominant view in the ...

  • Ayn Rand, Nihilist'

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In Nikolai Chernyshevskii and Ayn Rand: Russian Nihilism Travels to America, Aaron Weinacht argues that Ayn Rand brought the Russian nihilistic philosophic tradition to America. First, he establishes the cultural and educational environment in which Rand became a young adult, from both historical and philosophical viewpoints. He then draws out his argument by comparing Chernyshevskii's 1863 novel What Is to Be Done' (1989) to Rand's novel Atlas Shrugged (1957). In doing so, he observes that both authors dealt with common themes. Although Chernyshevskii was a socialist and Rand a capitalist, Weinacht maintains that their "sociopolitical theses tend to function as different means to the same ends" (Weinacht 2021 ... Read More
