The Ridiculous Rise of Ayn Rand – The Conversation – The Chronicle of Higher Education


Continuing the non-discussion about Ayn Rand and her unfortunate influence:

Right-wing think tanks can have Rand (even if she had little use for them). In the academy, she is a nonperson. Her theories are works of fiction. Her works of fiction are theories, and bad ones at that. Should the Republicans actually win in 2012, we might need to study her in the academic world. It would be for the same reason we sometimes need to study creationism.
