Feminist Interpretations of Ayn Rand

PUBLISHED REVIEWS

BRYAN REGISTER, FREE INQUIRY 20, NO. 1 (WINTER 1999):  64-65


"A Randian Feminism?"

Register states that the editors of the volume "have assembled the most important contribution to the academic study of Ayn Rand to appear in several years.  Their volume . . . should remove many doubts about whether Ayn Rand is worthy of scholarly study and can withstand critical perspectives.   Rand is well-known for her philosophical individualism  . . . But she also defended shockingly conservative positions about gender and sexuality.  It is from this paradox that several of the authors . . . take their lead. . . ."

"The Ayn Rand who emerges from these pages is a dynamic and multi-faceted figure, fully capable of profitable interaction with the tradition of Western thought.  Ayn Rand has entered the canon."
