I write and lecture on philosophical and political issues from an Objectivist perspective, Objectivism being the philosophy created by Ayn Rand. I also edit The Objective Standard, a quarterly journal of culture and politics. My first book, Loving Life: The Morality of Self-Interest and the Facts that Support It, is a highly concretized, systematic introduction to Ayn Rand's ethics. My book in progress, which is tentatively titled "Thinking in Principles: The Science of Selfishness," is about how to use one's mind in the service of one's life, liberty, and happiness. I have lectured and taught seminars at universities across the country, including Stanford, Duke, Tufts, UW–Madison, and NYU. I also lecture regularly at Objectivist conferences.
For a brief elaboration on the nature of Objectivism, see my essay “What is Objectivism?” or Leonard Peikoff’s essay “The Philosophy of Objectivism: A Brief Summary.” To learn more about the philosophy, I suggest beginning with Ayn Rand’s novel Atlas Shrugged.
