Lou Marinoff is an ardent defender of individual liberty and equal opportunity and a relentless opponent of group rights and unmerited preferments. He repudiates the divisive and vindictive political indoctrinations that have replaced higher education in the formerly free West, and that are now destroying Western civilization from within. He works tirelessly to expose the fallacies and frauds of political correctness, and to debunk progressivism's delusional doctrines and pernicious policies.

Lou Marinoff is a Commonwealth Scholar, originally from Canada. He has held affiliations at University College London, The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, The University of British Columbia, and (since 1994) The City College of New York. He has published eight books, along with dozens of invited books chapters, scholarly articles, reviews, and interviews. A pioneer of the philosophical practice movement, he has authored international best-sellers that apply philosophy to everyday life, including Plato Not Prozac, published in twenty-seven languages. The New York Times called him "the world's greatest marketer of philosophical counseling."
