In the first of these two short essays, “The Entrepreneurial Life,” Dr. David Kelley discusses the psychological and moral character traits essential to living successfully in a free society. In the second, “Is It Nobler to Give than to Create?”, he argues that greater nobility accrues to acts of successful production than acts of philanthropy and, accordingly, that we should honor those who create wealth more than those who give it away.

David Kelley, Ph.D., is Founder and Senior Fellow at the Atlas Society in Washington, D.C.. He received his Ph.D. in philosophy from Princeton University and was professor of philosophy at Vassar College and Brandeis University. He is the author of The Evidence of the Senses (LSU Press, 1986), A Life of One’s Own (Cato Institute, 1998), The Art of Reasoning (3rd edition, W. W. Norton, 1998; 4th edition forthcoming), and numerous other essays and monographs.

The two-essay set, The Entrepreneurial Life and Is It Nobler to Give than to Create? is available from Amazon or directly from Ockham’s Razor.
