Objectivist Scholars Present at the 2016 Foundations of a Free Society Conference

On June 1 and 2, 2016, Yaron Brook, Steve Simpson and Tara Smith will give presentations at the 2016 Foundations of a Free Society Conference, hosted by the Clemson Institute for the Study of Capitalism (CISC). CISC describes the conference as the largest of its kind in the Southeast, with its attendees reaching and influencing tens of thousands of students and members of the general public each year through teaching and research. Taking part in conferences like this one is an important part of how ARI works to promote Ayn Rand’s revolutionary philosophy.

Yaron Brook, executive director of the Ayn Rand Institute and co-author of the recently published Equal Is Unfair: America’s Misguided Fight Against Income Inequality, will participate on a panel titled “Altruism and Self-Interest,” in which he will discuss the source of moral hostility toward capitalism.

Steve Simpson, director of legal studies at the Ayn Rand Institute, will participate on a panel exploring free speech and academic freedom in higher education.

Tara Smith, professor of philosophy at the University of Texas at Austin and author of the recently published Judicial Review in an Objective Legal System, will participate on a panel discussing the role of the rule of law in a free society.
