About Per-Olof Samuelsson

Photo taken at a time when I could still believe in a "benevolent universe"

I was born in 1942. My father was a minister of the Swedish (Lutheran) church, and my mother was a high-school teacher. I have studied at the university, but most of my youth was spent on various kinds of irrationality.

I began reading Ayn Rand in 1972 (unfortunately for me and perhaps for the rest of mankind, I had never heard about her before that time), and I have spent a great deal of my time since then studying her philosophy.

I have translated Capitalism: The Unknown Ideal and Anthem into Swedish (published in 1984 and 1996 respectively), plus many other non-fiction essays by Ayn Rand and other Objectivists as part of Objektivistisk skriftserie, published between 1987 and 1996. I have also completed the translations of The Virtue of Selfishness and The New Left: The Anti-Industrial Revolution, but it is uncertain whether these translation will ever be published (for reasons explained in "Why I do not support the ‘official’ Objectivist ‘movement’").

I earn my living as an assistant ("second assistant") librarian at the Rogge Library in Strängnäs, Sweden, a branch of the Swedish Royal Library.

I have a lady friend who describes herself as a "rational hedonist" and who is excessively fond of dogs.

Favorite dog: Stella, a.k.a. Uffsa-Luffsa-Tuffsa, a.k.a. Hair of the Devil.
