Study of Philosophy on the Rise

Overall this seems like good news. People are recognizing the value of philosophy, which in turn means a potentially greater audience for Ayn Rand, and a concommitant greater demand for professors and teachers trained in her thought.
“If I were to start again as an undergraduate, I would major in philosophy,” said Matthew Goldstein, the CUNY chancellor, who majored in mathematics and statistics. “I think that subject is really at the core of just about everything we do. If you study humanities or political systems or sciences in general, philosophy is really the mother ship from which all of these disciplines grow.”
