The Atlas Society promotes open Objectivism: the philosophy of reason, achievement, individualism, and freedom.


Objectivism is the philosophy founded by Ayn Rand (19051982), the author of Atlas Shrugged, The Fountainhead, The Virtue of Selfishness, and other works. It is a philosophy of reason, individualism, respect for achievement, and freedom.

As the founders of open Objectivism we believe that the philosophy is a body of knowledge open to expansion and revision, through rational inquiry and open discussion and debate.

The Atlas Society works to "clear the air" and debunk common misconceptions about Rand and her works. Here are some myths about Ayn Rand and Objectivism.

Some individuals who embrace Objectivism; Rand Paul, Justice Clarence Thomas, Allen West, Gary Johnson, John Stossel, and Grover Norquist. Notice that they are not all Republicans
