Welcome!

Welcome to the Discover Ayn Rand project!

The aim of this project is to encourage the study and appreciation of Ayn Rand's ideas.

Ayn Rand is one of the "Big Seven" thinkers of the worldwide Celebrate Capitalism™ campaign.

Ayn Rand revolutionized practically everything she touched.

In Ethics she formulated the principle of "Rational Self-interest" and demonstrated the deadly nature of altruism.

In Epistemology (the branch of philosophy which deals with how do we know what we know) Ayn Rand solved the age old problem of how concepts are formed, how are they validated - and what is their connection to reality.

In Esthetics (Art) Ayn Rand defined the nature of Romanticism and why, for humans, art is not a luxury, but a vital need that derives from the volitional nature of human consciousness.

In Politics Ayn Rand showed how the political/economic/social system of Capitalism is both moral and practical. 

She identified how coercion and thinking are incompatible - a key foundation for her advocacy of individual rights, including private property rights - without which "... no other rights are possible".

"The moral justification of capitalism lies in the fact that it is the only system consonant with man's rational nature ..."

Ayn Rand's extraordinary intellect dealt with such matters as: The nature of volition (free will), use of the gold standard in economics, heroism in art, the legacy of Aristotle, what's wrong with altruism and collectivism.

And so much more!

Her discoveries, identifications, and conclusions are often astounding - and even today, often highly controversial! But the heart of Ayn Rand's unique genius was the way she approached things.

So, as you study Ayn Rand's ideas, be prepared to sweep away all traditions, dogmas, intellectual trends and fads. Be prepared to constructively question everything - not just the assumptions of others, but most important (and most difficult!) your own assumptions - and to leave no stone unturned in the quest for truth.

But the greatest challenge that Ayn Rand puts before us is the challenge of achieving personal happiness:

"Achievement of your happiness is the only moral purpose of your life, and that happiness, not pain or mindless self-indulgence, is the proof of your moral integrity ... "
As the Discover Ayn Rand project develops, I promise you an intellectual adventure, the likes of which you have never before experienced!
