Work in progress (4): new Reason Papers out


The newest issue of Reason Papers is out, volume 35, number 1. Originally scheduled for a June 2013 publication date and then pushed to July, it has, at last, come out in August. (It’s listed as July 2013 because that’s when we laid out the proofs.) This link takes you to Reason Papers’s Archive page, where you can find PDFs for each individual article (you have to scroll down a bit). There’s also a link there–and here–for a PDF to the entire issue in a single document (221 pages).

Contents include:

  • A fifty-page symposium on Jason Brennan‘s The Ethics of Voting (Princeton, 2011), with a response by Brennan.
  • A symposium on Ayn Rand’s theory of punishment, with contributions by David Boonin and myself.
  • One article on Hans-Herman Hoppe‘s conception of self-ownership (by Danny Frederick), and one on Alasdair MacIntyre‘s conception of tradition (Philip Devine).
  • A debate on Tara Smith‘s Ayn Rand’s Normative Ethics (Eyal Mozes vs. Carrie-Ann Biondi and Irfan Khawaja).
  • A debate between David Schmidtz and Gordon Barnes on the justification of private property.
  • Review essays of books on Allan Gotthelf‘s Aristotle scholarship (Owen Goldin), Sam Harris‘s Free Will (Eyal Mozes), and Gomery and Pafort-Duin’s Movie History: A Survey (Gary Jason).
  • “Afterwords” on the pay packages of “the 1%,” and on thick libertarianism (Joseph Fulda), on “Lincoln” and “Les Miserables” (Timothy Sandefur), and on the Nazi film industry (Gary Jason).

Contrary to something I blogged earlier, I wasn’t able to finish my review of Robert Mayhew’s Essays on Ayn Rand’s ‘We the Living’ in time for this issue, so that’ll have to wait until the fall issue.

Lots of good material in there, Objectivist and otherwise. Enjoy.
