My name is Virginia Murr and I graduated summa cum laude from Rockford College with a B. A. in Philosophy (2007). Philosophy is one of my crowning passions and borderline obsessions. Philosophy underscores everything in my life from writing to child-rearing.
I worked for many years for the Center for Ethics and Entrepreneurship, a nonprofit organization that is dedicated to achieving excellence in teaching and research in Business Ethics, Entrepreneurship, Political Economy, and related fields. Now I am a professional editor and writer.
I was honored to be the project manager of and a researcher for the DVD Nietzsche and the Nazis. My essays include: “The Price of Passivity: Hank Rearden’s Mind-body Dichotomy,” in Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged: A Philosophical and Literary Companion (Ashgate, 2007) and “Heroism Redefined: Integrating Mind and Emotion in Calumet ‘K’” in Capitalism and Commerce in Imaginative Literature (Lexington Books, 2016).
Karate is also an important aspect of my life. I have more than three decades of experience in karate (two decades as an instructor) and I hold a 6th degree black belt.
