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. 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.
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.
