The Atlas Society promotes open Objectivism: the philosophy of reason, achievement, individualism, and freedom.
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.
