(Metaphysics and Epistemology)
"Axioms: The Eight-fold Way" This article examines the history of thought on the nature of axioms in human knowledge, then focuses on the role of axioms in Objectivism.
Dual Foundationalism and the Core of the Objectivist Logic For several years, I have been at work on a book, the primary focus of which has been the Objectivist Theory of Logic. Although I certainly intend to continue with this work, I have decided that it is time to begin to share some of the results which I have arrived at with those who may find the subject a matter of interest.
"The Problem of Universals" One of my own articles.

"'My Life and My Love of It' - Comments on Objectivist Ethics" is a large, well-written defense of the Objectivist Ethics, focusing principally on how a survivalist interpretation of the standard of value (i.e., "dominant-end ethic") may, if properly understood, achieve all the richness which others seek when introducing a flourisher interpretation of of the standard of value (where numerous values are regarded as being "constitutive" of the primary end). Written by Bryan Register, this article is presently being hosted by The Philosopher's Den of UT-Austin, a website run by the university's student philosophy club.
"A Philosophy for Living On Earth" Another large article, this time in defense of an approach beginning from a flourisher's interpretation of the objectivist standard of value, principally with happiness as an end-in-itself, but seeking to bridge the gap between the flourisher and survivalist interpretations. Well-written, innovative.
"The Survivalist/Flourisher-Dichotomy" A smaller article written by myself in which I attempt to argue that both of the dominant interpretations of the Objectivist standard of value are mistaken.
