Volume 14, Number 2 (Issue 27, December 2014) of The Journal of Ayn Rand Studies, published by Pennsylvania State University Press, is the current issue, exhibiting our truly interdisciplinary character. Essays dealing with subjects as diverse as epistemology, literary criticism, political economy, and feminism, are featured.  Robert White investigates the nature of the corporation; Edward W. Younkins surveys the literary landscape to explore the integrative nature of Atlas Shrugged; Dennis C.Hardin critiques Leonard Peikoff's negative assessment of the future, arguing for much more positive possibilities for humankind; Mimi Reisel Gladstein focuses on what she sees as a cognitive disconnect between Rand's philosophy and her opposition to the idea of a woman President; and Roger E. Bissell begins the task of developing an Objectivist-friendly understanding of the fundamental nature of the proposition.  The issue concludes with Fred Seddon's review of Bissell's new work on mathematics and Michelle Marder Kamhi's new work on art. And Hannes H. Gissurarson takes on Thomas Piketty's thesis in Capital in the Twenty-First Century.

We are currently accepting proposals in a "Call for Papers" for a forthcoming symposium: "Assessing the Legacy of Nathaniel Branden."  See here and here.
