Machan on Rand and Objectivism

My friend Tibor Machan presents a fascinating and excellent lecture on “Thoughts on Objectivism and Ayn Rand” at the Libertarian Alliance Conference in October 2009 in London. I enjoyed in partiuclar Machan’s discussion of how many of Rand’s technical philosophical views–on volition, epistemology, and so on–were similar to perhaps more sophisticated treatments by mainstream philosophers such as Austin, Sperry, and so on.

(Tibor is introduced by my friend Sean Gabb; Gabb’s video record of the proceedings of the conference. Gabb, a regular at Hans-Hermann Hoppe‘s Property and Freedom Society meetings (see his The Third Meeting of the Property and Freedom Society, Bodrum, May 2008: A Brief Record; The Second Meeting of the Property and Freedom Society; The Inaugural Meeting of the Property and Freedom Society: An Incidental Record), also contributed the chapter “Hans-Hermann Hoppe and the Political Equivalent of Nuclear Fusion” to Property, Freedom, and Society: Essays in Honor of Hans-Hermann Hoppe.)
