Ronald Nash on the relationship among the free market economy, Christianity, and ethics. There is no end to my debt to Ronald Nash, who died several years ago. I took Intro. to Philosophy with Nash at Western Ky Univ. the last semester he was there, before he retired. He introduced me to both philosophy and to free market economic thinking. Because of him I became a libertarian, fell in love with philosophy and economics, turned away from molecular biology and toward creative writing and literature, and now have a M.A. in English and a Ph.D. in the Humanities.
