According to Objectivist David Kelley, financier Michael Milken has done more for mankind than humanitarian Mother Teresa. Working from this statement, Then Athena Said examines Objectivism, a philosophy founded by Ayn Rand, and ultimately concludes, in opposition to essential claims of Objectivism, that other people are a fundamental part of reality. Relying, in part, upon economic theory, decision theory under uncertainty, and game theory, Then Athena Said examines unilateral transfers-including charity, childrearing, bequests, retribution, gifts, favors, forgiveness, and various infringements against persons or property-within the Objectivist framework.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Touchstone's work wonderfully combines economic theory's focus on 'what is' with ethics' focus on what one 'should do...' Then Athena Said is a well-thought out, well written and well laidout original book. The context is logical and systematic in order, and throughout the book the prose is direct and clear. * The Journal of Ayn Rand Studies *
This is an invaluable book, making some genuinely original contributions to social philosophy, especially, Touchstone's argument that within the Objectivist framework other people ought to occupy a more significant position than Rand's work makes evident is novel and suggestive of important developments. The work should be of interest to both students and critics of Rand's thought as well as anyone who sees promise in a classical liberal, libertarian social and political philosophy. -- Tibor Machan, R.C. Hoiles Professor of Business Ethics and Free Enterprise, Chapman University
