However, in early August 2010, Dr. Peikoff raised the question of whether Dr. McCaskey should continue to serve on ARIís Board. Dr. McCaskey had indicated that he did not and could not support a significant intellectual project funded by ARI and championed by Dr. Peikoff and ARIís Board. The project, David Harrimanís new book, The Logical Leap, presents Dr. Peikoffís ground-breaking theory of induction, and illustrates the theoryís essentials through an examination of the history of physics. In essence, Dr. Peikoff viewed Dr. McCaskey as having a serious conflict in this regard. The Board began a discussion of how to resolve the matter.Doesn't sound very "public" to me.
In addition, the Board had the practical, moral, and fiduciary responsibility to avoid needlessly damaging our important relationship with Dr. Peikoff. Dr. Peikoff founded ARI, served as its first Board chairman, and has continued to provide ARI with moral, financial, and practical support over the 25 years of ARIís existence.Emphasis on "financial," I'm sure.
Yaron Brook is a great man, and I wish him all the luck in the world.
