R. W. BRADFORD, LIBERTY (MAY 1996)
"HERMENEUTIC: THE TRUTH AND AYN RAND"
R. W. Bradford reflects on the reviews of Ayn Rand: The
Russian Radical, written by Lester Hunt (for Liberty) and James
Lennox (for Reason and the IOS
Journal). Bradford praises Sciabarra's research into Rand's Russian roots, but
disagrees with Sciabarra's and Hunt's assessment of the Rand-Lossky link. Bradford agrees
more with Lennox's assessment, but criticizes Lennox as a "defender of the
faith." He concludes that Sciabarra's thesis is "overpowering," that
"the evidence Sciabarra presents that Rand was influenced by the philosophy of
Russia's Silver Age is thorough and convincing."
