IESS Entry on "Objectivism"

I've authored an entry on Ayn Rand's philosophy, "Objectivism," which appears in the new International Encyclopedia of the Social Sciences, a 9-volume, 4000-page work published by Macmillan Reference USA, edited by William A. Darity, Jr. (Detroit: Macmillan Reference USA, 2008). The article can be found in Volume 6: Oaxaca, Ronald - Quotas, Trade, pp. 6-8, but the people at Gale / Cengage Learning have been kind enough to give me permission to post the PDF of the article on my home site.

You can access the essay as a PDF document here.

The sentence that starts "But some scholars have argued..." made me chuckle.

Well done, C. As always it's nice to see Rand's work fairly characterized.

My my! That's a big reference book.

Congrats on the entry! Chris.

Thanks, Venus, and thanks, Austen.

Thought you'd get a kick out of that line... but at least ~today~ I can say that there actually are several scholars who argue for this point, not just me. LOL

Check out the work by Bernice Rosenthal, for example.

All the best,
