I’m Roderick T. Long, Professor of Philosophy at Auburn University; President of the Molinari Institute and Molinari Society; a Senior Scholar of the Ludwig von Mises Institute; editor of The Industrial Radical; co-editor of the Journal of Ayn Rand Studies and Anarchism/Minarchism: Is a Government Part of a Free Country?; co-founder (more or less) of the Alliance of the Libertarian Left; author of Reason and Value: Aristotle versus Rand (2000) and Wittgenstein, Austrian Economics, and the Logic of Action (forthcoming from Routledge); a member of the boards of the Libertarian Nation Foundation and the Foundation for a Democratic Society, and of the advisory boards of the Center for a Stateless Society, the the Center for the Study of Innovative Freedom, and the Institute for Objectivist Studies; past editor of the Journal of Libertarian Studies; and past president of the Alabama Philosophical Society. I received my philosophical training at Harvard (A.B. 1985) and Cornell (Ph.D. 1992) and have taught at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and the University of Michigan. I’m an Aristotelean/Wittgensteinian in philosophy and a left-libertarian market anarchist in social theory. (More about me here.) This blog, Austro-Athenian Empire, is a continuation of my earlier blog, archived here. I have also blogged at Bleeding Heart Libertarians, Liberty & Power, and Art of the Possible.
