Objectivism is a philosophical system of thought first developed by the novelist and philosopher Ayn Rand. Objectivism aims to provide the student with a philosophy that is both broadly applicable and based on systematic rational thought that is free of subjective judgement. Rand's work on Objectivism is highly controversial and has not been adopted widely within the philosophical community. This book will attempt to present Rand's arguments fairly but will also cover criticisms of Objectivism.
