The Philosophy of Stefan Molyneux

FreeDomain Radio, owned and operated by Stefan Molyneux, advertises itself as “The largest and most popular philosophical conversation in the world.” A fascinating claim, since it is highly unlikely that most of the philosophers in the world have ever heard of Molyneux or FDR.

The advertising copy for FDR reads:

Powerful ideas for all lovers of personal and political freedom–Freedomain Radio is the largest and most popular philosophy show on the web, and was a Top 10 Finalist in the 2007, 2008 and 2009 Podcast Awards. Topics range from politics to philosophy to science to economics to relationships to atheism—and how to achieve real freedom in your life today. Passionate, articulate, funny and irreverent, Freedomain Radio shines a bold light on old topics, and invents a few new ones to boot!

The FDR site also offers a brief bio of Molyneux himself here. However, I have been able to expand on that bio in various places on FDR Liberated.

Because of the way Molyneux has described the FDR topics of interest above, FDR Liberated will follow suit to a degree. This section contains articles about the philosophical theories of Stefan Molyneux and their application at FreeDomain Radio, with a special focus on UPB (Universally Preferable Behavior).

On Truth—The Tyranny of Illusion)

In the FDR tradition this is the first book you’re supposed to read.

It’s a primer on hating your parents.
