Call in to speak with the host
Dr. Gregory Salmieri joins Andrew Bernstein and Arshak Benlian on "Objectively Speaking" to discuss the literary brilliance, moral and philosophic themes of the most important book in man's history - Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand.
"Gregory Salmieri received his Ph. D. in philosophy from the University of Pittsburgh in 2008. Between 2008 and 2012, he was a visiting assistant professor in the Philosophy department at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. He is presently a Visiting Fellow in the philosophy department at Boston University.
Dr. Salmieri's research focuses on ancient philosophy, epistemology, and ethics. One theme running through a number of his projects is the role played by theories of concepts or universals in epistemology. A second theme is the realtion between virtue and self-interest. Much of his current work addresses these issues as they arise in Aristotle's thought." (Academia.edu, Gregori Salmieri profile)
It's good to talk.
