Call for papers for special issue of JARS

A Tenth Anniversary Symposium-in-the-Making

Ayn Rand, Objectivism, and War

In honor of JARS' Tenth Anniversary, we are issuing a Call For Papers on the subject of "Ayn Rand, Objectivism, and War." The deadline for proposals is April 1, 2008; the deadline for papers is September 1, 2008.

We are interested in papers that cover any aspect of this very broad topic: Rand's view of war; defenses or critiques of Rand-influenced views of "just war," the current war or past wars, terrorism, "collateral damage," torture, the relationship between domestic and foreign policy, etc.

We are less interested in discussions of "current events"—except insofar as they illustrate broader principles. Remember that we are a semi-annual and that the state of "current events" will change considerably before these essays are brought to print.

Submissions should adhere to our style guidelines; proposals should be submitted via email to: chris DOT sciabarra AT nyu DOT edu

Robert, I'm very glad that JARS is devoting an entire issue to "Ayn Rand, Objectivism, and War." It's an important subject, and to my knowledge has been dealt with only piecemeal, in bits and separate aspects here and there. It surely deserves a broader discussion and treatment.
