ABOUT THE BOOK Ayn Rand studied philosophy at university, and devoted much of her life to developing her own philosophy, known as Objectivism. In Rand's view, no one who does not have either an implicit or explicit worldview can adequately deal with life's problems. Hence, the titular essay of her book, Philosophy: Who Needs It? The original essay was delivered as an address to the graduating class of the United States Military Academy at West Point, in 1974. A recording of this talk, along with the subsequent Q&A, is also available. MEET THE AUTHOR Mia has two intersecting careers: She is a philosophy professor in the Philosophy/Sociology Department at Pierce College, and a freelance writer. Her combined skills, experience, and broad range of interests make me a thorough and efficient researcher, concept analyst and developer, and writer across a wide array of topics and subjects.Whether she writes fiction or non-fiction, her main interests involve societal issues and culture, primarily from a philosophical standpoint. What that means is that she not only attempts to investigate and inquire into the ideas that underpin or permeate certain issues and topics, but also to remain open to changing my her views. It is often the case that inquiry forces one to re-evaluate and amend one's beliefs. It can be a rather uncomfortable experience, but worthwhile nonetheless. Such is the case with Mia. She attempts to see where the topic at hand leads her, and questions what sort of method she uses in her investigation, and then draws a conclusion.Mia's philosophical interests range across metaphysical and epistemological subjects such as free will and moral responsibility, causation, conditionals, consciousness, personal identity, punishment, and metaphor, to contemporary issues such as same-sex marriage. She greatly enjoys conducting introductory courses in the history of philosophy, logic, and ethics.
