  1. Ayn Rand: The Russian Radical.Chris Matthew Sciabarra - 2013 - Pennsylvania State University Press.
    Author of _The Fountainhead_ and _Atlas Shrugged_, Ayn Rand is one of the most widely read philosophers of the twentieth century. Yet, despite the sale of over thirty million copies of her works, there have been few serious scholarly examinations of her thought. _Ayn Rand: The Russian Radical_ provides a comprehensive analysis of the intellectual roots and philosophy of this controversial thinker. It has been nearly twenty years since the original publication of Chris Sciabarra’s _Ayn Rand: The Russian Radical_. Those (...)

    The Rand Transcript.Chris Matthew Sciabarra - 1999 - Journal of Ayn Rand Studies 1 (1):1 - 26.
    CHRIS MATTHEW SCIABARRA discusses the major historical significance of his discovery and investigation of Ayn Rand's transcript from the University of St. Petersburg. The document provides evidence of Rand's study with some of the finest Russian scholars of the period, and helps to resolve certain paradoxes concerning Rand's relationship to the philosopher, N. O. Lossky. It also contributes to our understanding of those methods and ideas that may have influenced Rand's intellectual development.

    The Illustrated Rand.Chris Matthew Sciabarra - 2004 - Journal of Ayn Rand Studies 6 (1):1 - 20.
    This article surveys the exponential increase in Rand references in scholarly and popular sources to illustrate her cultural ascendancy as an iconic figure. Special attention is paid to Rand's impact on popular literature, television, cartoons, and illustrated media, including comics. Rand's own involvement in illustrated presentations of her ideas is explored, as is her influence on such comic artists as Steve Ditko, Frank Miller, and others. Nathaniel Branden's insights on the role of comics in projecting heroic values are also addressed.

    Are We All Dialecticians Now? Reply to MacGregor and Friedman.Chris Matthew Sciabarra - 1998 - Critical Review 12 (3):283-299.
    Abstract In his critique of Ayn Rand: The Russian Radical, David MacGregor argues that my book trivializes dialectical method. He fails to notice the many nondialectical assumptions that pervade contemporary social theory and practice. Dialectics, as a context?sensitive methodological orientation, can provide tools for a better grasp of systems and processes in the real world?the goal, as I understand it, of the ?post?libertarian? approach Jeffrey Friedman advocates.

    Ayn Rand Among the Austrians: Introduction.Chris Matthew Sciabarra & Larry J. Sechrest - 2005 - Journal of Ayn Rand Studies 6 (2):241 - 250.
    This article surveys Rand's relationship to key thinkers in the Austrian school of economics, including Ludwig von Mises, Murray N. Rothbard, and F. A. Hayek. Austrian theory informs the writings of Rand and her early associates (e.g., Nathaniel Branden, Alan Greenspan, and George Reisman) on topics ranging from monopoly to business cycles. Some post-Randian thinkers (e.g., Richard Salsman), however, have repudiated many of these insights, thus constituting a movement away from the historically close relationship between Objectivism and Austrianism. This symposium (...)

    Rejoinder to the Respondents to Chris Matthew Sciabarra's Fall 2002 Article: Rand, Rock, and Radicalism.Chris Matthew Sciabarra - 2003 - Journal of Ayn Rand Studies 5 (1):229 - 241.
    Sciabarra replies to the seven respondents to his Fall 2002 essay on Rand, Rush, and progressive rock music. He defends the view that Rand's dialectical orientation underlies a fundamentally radical perspective. Rand shared with the counterculture—especially its libertarian progressive rock representatives—a repudiation of authoritarianism, while embracing the "unknown ideal" of capitalism. Her ability to trace the interrelationships among personal, cultural, and structural factors in social analysis and her repudiation of false alternatives is at the heart of that ideal vision, which (...)

    The Rand Transcript, Revisited.Chris Matthew Sciabarra - 2005 - Journal of Ayn Rand Studies 7 (1):1 - 17.
    In an examination of recently recovered materials from Russian archival sources, Sciabarra expands on his earlier studies of Rand's secondary and university education in Silver Age Russia (see the Fall 1999 Journal of Ayn Rand Studies essay, "The Rand Transcript"). He uncovers new details that are consistent with his historical theses, first presented in the 1995 book, Ayn Rand: The Russian Radical. He reexamines the case for a connection between Rand and N. O. Lossky, and proposes a possible parallel between (...)

    Reply to Roderick Long: Dialectical Libertarianism: All Benefits, No Hazards.Chris Matthew Sciabarra - 2002 - Journal of Ayn Rand Studies 3 (2):381 - 399.
    Chris Matthew Sciabarra responds to Roderick Long's review (Journal of Ayn Rand Studies, Spring 2001) of his Total Freedom: Toward a Dialectical Ubertarianism. Sciabarra argues that the dialectical stress upon context-keeping encompasses both analytic and synthetic activities. He defends his interpretations of Aristotle, Marx, Rothbard, and internal relations, and presents a radical dialectical libertarian alternative— a conception of freedom that is not merely political or economic but also psycho-epistemological, ethical, and cultural.

    The First Libertarian.Chris Matthew Sciabarra - unknown
    In his short review of The Political Philosophy of Herbert Spencer , Timothy Virkkala (May 1999) praises Tim S. Gray's discussion of the great classical liberal's methodology as a synthesis of "individualist" and "holist" approaches to social theory. But Virkkala remarks This method -I'm tempted to call it "dialectical," but Spencer's prose and position seem so far from Hegel's that the term is almost indecent -confuses many readers. But it is surely his strength. Gray is one of the few Spencer (...)

  25. Toward a Radical Critique of Utopianism: Dialectics and Dualism in the Works Offriedrich Hayek, Murray Rothbard and Karl Marx.Chris Matthew Sciabarra - 1988 - Dissertation, New York University
    This thesis develops a radical critique of utopian thinking by examining the dialectical and dualistic methodological elements in Hayekian, Rothbardian, and Marxian theory. Utopianism is defined as an abstract, dualistic, ahistorical form of social thought. Its central failure is its inability to resolve the polarity between its progressive intentions and the emergent, unintended consequences of human interaction. It grants to men an illusory degree of cognitive efficacy in its construction of a new society. Radicalism, however, recognizes socio-historical conditions in any (...)
