Hooray! The 2005 meeting of the Ayn Rand Society looks fantastic! It will be held during the Eastern Division Meeting of the American Philosophical Association, in New York City, on Thursday December 29th from 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the New York Hilton.

Under the general topic of “Ayn Rand as Aristotelian,” the meeting will consist of the following speakers and topics:

  • James G. Lennox (University of Pittsburgh), “Axioms and their Validation”
  • Allan Gotthelf (University of Pittsburgh), “Concepts and Essences”
  • Fred D. Miller, Jr. (Bowling Green State University), “Values and Happiness”
  • Robert Mayhew (Seton Hall University), “Literary Esthetics”

    Happily, the announcement contained the following note: “The program will be chaired by Professor John M. Cooper of Princeton University. Professor Cooper is Stuart Professor of Philosophy at Princeton and is a world-renowned scholar of ancient philosophy. He was chairman of Princeton’s Philosophy dept. from 1984 to 1992, and was President of the APA Eastern Division in 1999-2000.”

    If you want to attend the meetings or just receive copies of the papers presented, you ought to become a member or contributor. For those interested in academic Objectivism, it’s well worth the few bucks.
