Q&A with Jason Brennan
Jason Brennan talked about his book, Libertarianism: What Everyone Needs to Know. He suggested that his goal for the book was to make libertarianism seem reasonable to people who were not inclined to know much about it. He described the book as a primer in the political philosophy described as libertarianism. In his book, Professor Brennan reviews well-know libertarians such as Ayn Rand and Milton Friedman, as well as Adam Smith and John Locke. He broadly defines three categories of libertarian thinkers as classical liberals, hard libertarians, and neo-classical liberals. He names examples of each category and talks about their views on many different economic and social issues. Professor Brennan reacted to video clips of Nick Gillespie, David Boaz, and Milton Friedman. He explained that the book was the latest in a series of “What Everyone Needs to Know” books published by Oxford University Press. In addition, he talked about his life and how he became interested libertarianism. close
