Stefan Molyneux Audio

I am Stefan Molyneux, the host of Freedomain Radio.

I have been a software entrepreneur and executive, co-founded a successful company and worked for many years as a Chief Technical Officer.

I studied literature, history, economics and philosophy at York University, hold an undergraduate degree in History from McGill University, and earned a graduate degree from the University of Toronto, focusing on the history of philosophy. I received an 'A' for my Master's Thesis analyzing the political implications of the philosophies of Immanuel Kant, G.W.F. Hegel, Thomas Hobbes and John Locke. I also spent two years studying writing and acting at the National Theatre School of Canada.

I have been fascinated by philosophy - particularly moral theories - since my mid-teens. Now, over 20 years later, a voluminous amount of mental sweat is finally bearing fruit! The Freedomain Radio conversation is designed to solve the problem of the ages, which is the definition and proof of a rational system of morality without reference to religion, and without violating the "is/ought" dichotomy.

I left my career as a software entrepreneur and executive, to pursue philosophy full time through my work here at Freedomain Radio. I have written a number of novels as well as many free books on philosophy. You can go to my book page to check them out.

Why should you listen to me?

An excellent question, I can see we're going to get along already!

First of all, I am completely unimportant in the conversation. In my podcasts and videos, I try to avoid opinions, and instead talk about proof and rationality. If the theories I propose are reasonable, and are supported by evidence, well and good, we have both learned something. If not, listeners such as you are quick to point out errors, which I receive with gratitude.

This approach is fundamentally different from most "talk shows." I am a rigorous philosopher, and I will always bow to reason and evidence. This is not a show about my opinions, because who would care about those?
