“The name I have chosen for my philosophy is Objectivism.

For the New Intellectual (1961), Ayn Rand

“At a sales conference at Random House, preceding the publication of Atlas Shrugged, one of the book salesmen asked me whether I could present the essence of my philosophy while standing on one foot. I did as follows:

  • Metaphysics:Objective Reality
  • Epistemology:Reason
  • Ethics:Self-interest
  • Politics:Capitalism

If you want this translated into simple language, it would read: 1. ‘Nature, to be commanded, must be obeyed’ or ‘Wishing won’t make it so.’ 2. ‘You can’t eat your cake and have it, too.’ 3. ‘Man is an end in himself.’ 4. ‘Give me liberty or give me death.’”

A short description of Objectivism given by Ayn Rand in 1962.
