Thomas Sowell is one of the most brilliant and clear thinkers of the last century and a national treasure. He had written several books and many columns. He’s interested in the facts. Dogma, emotion, and rhetoric are unimportant to him.


  1. Sir–I miss your columns. I’m always happy when I find information online about you and what you are up to currently. I hold you in the highest esteem possible.
    It must make you sad to see all the awful things that are going on around us. Do you have any words of encouragement you can give peaceful people like me?

  2. His brilliance has changed my life. Thomas Sowell can can explain complex theory to laymen all the while never acting as the anointed one. I’ve read all of his books and keep pages marked for those rare times when a lefty spouts some commonly accepted information garnered from his group think peers and actually challenges me to argue against his consensus point. It’s always easy to argue with lefties, because they never use evidence or facts and when they use statistics they tend to read things not evident into their conclusions.
    The proof is in the fact that Sowell’s work is still sited and tested and always proven correct over time.

  3. It’s a huge understatement to say Thomas So we’ll is a national treasure. This man’s values and how he can illuminate current social failings on the lack of values in generations coming of age in the sixties and beyond is extremely insightful and completely correct. Still sharp as a tack in his nineties. Every k-12 student should be required to study this great man.

  4. I was a college teacher lucky enough to learn early in life Dr. Sowell’s common sense teaching. He has influenced my thinking greatly and I have benefitted so much from reading his works. He is a very gifted thinker and a great American!

  5. Once more I’m awake at 3 AM, and what I do immediately is grab my I-phone to listen to interviews of Dr. Thomas Sowell on Uncommon Knowledge by Peter Robinson. It’s one of my great comforts at the tender age of 74. Doctor Sowell is and interminable source of knowledge and more so of reaffirmation of my personal beliefs and understanding of the world unfolding around us. I’ve read some of his books and many of his columns, but I mostly enjoy listening to him in these interviews by masterful Peter Robinson. Thank you, both of you, for such a marvelous treat. Be blessed.

  6. I appreciate and cherish the logical truths Mr. Sowell speaks. Wish his opinions were more highly recognized by ALL. Good luck to you and your family Mr. Sowell. Hoping to see you sharing your insights and intellect for decades more to come.
