Stephen Hicks interviewed by Glenn Beck

Wednesday, December 19th, 2018

Dr. Stephen Hicks was interviewed by Glenn Beck for the Glenn Beck Podcast. The discussion ranged over capitalism and socialism, the ethics needed for a free society, Greek virtues, intolerance and indoctrination in education, Ayn Rand’s egoism, whether a meaningful life requires transcending failure, the differences between Antifa and Nazi Brownshirts, whether the National Socialist really were socialist, postmodernism, whether Nietzsche’s “God is dead” is nihilistic or liberating, whether World War I was the cultural breaking point, Dadaism, Sigmund Freud, Michel Foucault, Jacques Derrida, whether history repeats itself, how to return to constructive dialogue, should we be optimistic or pessimistic, and more.

CEE’s 2010 fundraising appeal

Thursday, December 30th, 2010

From the Executive Director

In 2009 CEE won the Templeton Freedom Award. The award was for our creative course development, and it was the result of a competition with over 100 entries from centers, institutes, and think tanks around the world.

CEE has developed original courses in Entrepreneurship and Ethics and Capitalism and the Modern World , and we have reached a growing audience of college students, high school students, professors, and readers of our Kaizen newsletter both in print and online.

We are proud of what we have accomplished in our first four years, and I hope you will support us so that we can both continue and increase our efforts.

Please check out our Accomplishments List for our first four years — but there are two items I would like to highlight: Shawn Klein, having completed and defended his dissertation this year, is now Dr. Shawn Klein; and I won our college’s Excellence in Teaching Award.

CEE was launched in 2007 with a grant from the BB&T Charitable Foundation. That grant expires this coming year; hence our current fundraising efforts to ensure our ongoing progress.

Please look over the links to samples of our work and consider making a donation. And if you have any questions about our plans for the future, please feel welcome to contact me.

All the very best for the holiday season,
Stephen R. C. Hicks, Ph.D.

Professor of Philosophy
Executive Director, Center for Ethics and Entrepreneurship
