About Objectivism

Objectivism is the philosophy founded by Ayn Rand (1905–1982), the author of Atlas Shrugged, The Fountainhead, The Virtue of Selfishness, and other works. It is a philosophy of reason, individualism, respect for achievement, and freedom.

As the founders of open Objectivism we believe that the philosophy is a body of knowledge open to expansion and revision, through rational inquiry and open discussion and debate.
