Call for Papers: Rand & Nietzsche

The Journal of Ayn Rand Studies announces this “Call for Papers” for a special symposium:

Ayn Rand and Friedrich Nietzsche
Despite her criticisms of Friedrich Nietzsche, even the mature Ayn Rand recognized in him a poet who projected, emotionally, “at times … a magnificent feeling for man’s greatness …” Indeed, the young Ayn Rand had learned much from Nietzsche, reflected in her early unpublished and published works.
The aim of this forthcoming issue of the journal is to trace the similarities and the differences between these thinkers in metaphysics, epistemology, ethics, politics, and aesthetics. As a nonpartisan periodical, the journal welcomes contributions from every perspective and every discipline toward that end.
Proposals should be sent by 1 July 2004 by email to Chris Matthew Sciabarra, or by mail to: Chris Matthew Sciabarra, Visiting Scholar, NYU Department of Politics, 726 Broadway, 7th floor, New York, New York 10003.
Completed manuscripts will be due by 1 July 2005; the symposium won’t be published prior to 2006.
