This is an unofficial index, compiled by fans, not by professional editors. Any such index probably contains mistakes. In Episode 62 -- May 18, 2009 (about midway), Dr. Peikoff actually discussed the problems inherent in compiling an index like this one. Dr. Peikoff has not seen this index; please consider this a "fan index", with all the problems with misinterpretation that come with that.
Much of this index contains the questions that other people (not necessarily Objectivists) have asked. Thus, a question -- as framed -- may misrepresent Rand or Objectivism by the assumptions implied in the way it is framed. Only listening to the actual recording will provide the full context and Dr. Peikoff's reply. Use at your own risk.
Nevertheless, hopefully -- E&OE -- this index will be helpful in searching for references.
To view the entire topic as a single web-page, click "Options" and then"Print this page". Once done, the browsers "Find in page" should suffice for most searches.
This topic is locked, as it is only meant to act as an index. To discuss any specific question and answer, search for an existing topic on the subject; if none exists, start a new one. The same for any inaccuracies found in the index. Start a thread, and we can use it for any further comments about the index itself.
I'd like to thank member Trebor for the work he has put into making this index, and for sharing this on the forum.
Update - 11/14/09
I would like to thank JASKN for taking over the responsibility of updating the index a few months ago. Since then, he has been in communication with Dr. Peikoff concerning this index, and Dr. Peikoff recently decided, without full endorsement, to link directly to this index from his own site:
"November 11, 2009
I learned recently that an index of all my podcasts, transcribing the questions taken up in each (but not the answers), has been published on another website. Having scanned only a few samples, I do not know the quality of the rest; but the samples I saw were accurate and complete. On this basis, I have decided to offer the link for interested listeners:
I want to express my appreciation to the individuals involved in writing and publishing this index. I must, however, add that I do not know these individuals or the contents of their website, so please judge for yourself in this regard.
Belatedly, I'd like to thank softwareNerd for his great help in the process of creating this index.
If anyone viewing this index identifies any errors that are in need of correction, please notify JASKN or softwareNerd, or one of the forum moderators.
To visitors who came here by clicking on the link hosted on Dr. Peikoff's site:
First, welcome to OO.net. We hope this index is helpful to you. If you aren't familiar with our site, we hope you'll take the time to look around.
Do remember that this is a forum where one will read all sorts of views, many of them completely anti-Objectivist. So, what you read on the forum does not come with even the slightest recommendation from Dr. P. Indeed, most folks who post here don't agree with lots of things that other post here. Caveat emptor: this is the big bad world of the internet! Enjoy!!
