This show brings the audience great things Ohioans are doing to make their communities, the state, the region, and the world a better place as entrepreneurs, leaders, historical and popular culture figures.

For episode 59, I had the pleasure of speaking with David Kelley, a highly regarded Philosophy Teacher/Writer and Founder of The Atlas Society. David has spent his life studying, teaching, and promoting Objectivism associated with Ayn Rand.  To connect with the Outstanding Ohioans show, here are a few ways:

Here were the topics we discussed in our conversation:

  • Growing up in Cleveland and Shaker Heights
  • reading Ayn Rand’s The Fountainhead
  • concept of Individualism vs. Collectivism
  • Definition of Objectivism, under these four pillars:
    • Reason
    • Achievement
    • Individualism
    • Freedom
  • his teaching career and process of deciding to form The Atlas Society
  • speculation on universities and intellectuals becoming more collectivist in the United States, and what in Ayn Rand’s background led her to oppose this movement
  • his role in the creation of The Atlas Shrugged Trilogy
  • The Tuttle Twin book series by Connor Boyack to teach the principles of freedom to children
