JARS Tenth Anniversary Celebration Concludes
Spring is here (as of 1:32 pm EDT tomorrow), and that means the Spring issue of The Journal of Ayn Rand Studies is here too!
Ah, if only publication schedules were as reliable as the Vernal Equinox. As reported here, the journal moved from Port Townsend, Washington to Reno, Nevada, and now all operations are out of Brooklyn, New York. I've had a few bumps in the road of my own to deal with, but I'm happy to report that the new issue is finally at the printer. This is our long-awaited symposium on Ayn Rand and Friedrich Nietzsche, and we should be getting the issue off to subscribers within the next two weeks. And yes, it is a Spring issue, even if our year is off a bit.
Readers will be treated to a provocative discussion of the relationship between the two thinkers, featuring the following essays and authors:
Egoism in Nietzsche and Rand - Stephen R. C. Hicks
Egoism in Nietzsche and Rand: A Somewhat Different Approach - Lester Hunt
Ronald E. Merrill and the Discovery of Ayn Rand’s Nietzschean Period - Adam Reed
Nietzsche, Rand, and the Ethics of the Great Task - Peter Saint-Andre
Will the Real Apollo Please Stand Up? Rand, Nietzsche, and the Reason-Emotion Dichotomy - Roger E. Bissell
Embracing Power Roles Naturally: Rand’s Nietzschean Heroes and Villains - Robert Powell
Our publication schedule will be getting back to normal in the coming months. A few back issues are still available, though hard copies are going fast, and we are working hard to digitize our oldest issues for the benefit of our readers. Most importantly, our subscription databases are up to date, and we encourage new subscribers to take advantage of our new Paypal Express (see our subscription page).
