|Here is his description:|
I am currently adjunct professor of [etc.].
Though I first got involved in the Objectivist movement in 1991 through David Kelley’s Institute for Objectivist Studies, I left IOS in 1997, and am currently sympathetic to neither TOC nor ARI. I should add that what I write here reflects my own views, not those of any organization or institution, and that nothing I write here is intended to sanction anyone or anything beyond what I explicitly sanction. SOLO is, in Lindsay Perigo’s words, a “platform” for the views of its individual authors; authors are not to be understood as “signing on” to any agenda beyond that.
To be absolutely clear, however, given their prominence at SOLO, I especially wish to dissociate myself from both Barbara Branden and Tibor Machan. I regard Branden’s The Passion of Ayn Rand (both the book and the film) to be insulting and subversive of rational discourse. Machan’s brazen defamations of Allan Gotthelf (see thread entitled “Objectivism in Academia”) belong in the same category. An Objectivist movement worthy of the name has to get beyond such attitudes.
