Ayn Rand's Utopian Visions in Theory and Realization

  • Ben Sapet

Abstract

Ayn Rand sought to reframe the world around a distinctly utopian sense of domineering
individualism. Her philosophy vilifed altruism and extolled selfshness in the name of her human
ideal. With its unwavering faith in the free market and adoration of industrial magnates, Rand’s
often problematic philosophy has gone on to shape American economic and political models. This
essay explores how Rand’s philosophy manifested in her fction and, in turn, in American culture.
