Dr Robert

Pssst.  I know that many of you know Robert White, a local Objectivist, so I'm very happy to report that Robert is now Doctor Robert -- his thesis on the philosophy of Ayn Rand has now been accepted, and the title of Doctor about to be bestowed.

Congratulations Doctor.

UPDATE: Oops, apparently my grapevine was slightly inaccurate.  I said the title of Doctor is about to
be bestowed. In fact, Robert's degree was conferred several weeks ago.

Here's the Beatles, with 'Dr Robert':


And here's a very good Peruvian Beatles covers band doing Dr Robert.  Who knew that such things even existed.


  1. Has Dr. Robert got any medicine ? I am asking because I like Doctors medicine.

  2. Indeed. Congratulations Dr White.

    Dr Robert.

  6. Sincere congratulations Dr. Robert and kudos for your choice of subject matter.

  7. (Dr!) Robert,

    Well done (I hope you read all these) - the sooner we see your influence affecting university philosophy departments the better.
