Although Ayn Rand was a prolific author, she never wrote a treatise on Objectivism — her philosophical thinking and cultural commentary are spread out among more than a dozen books. To make it easier to discover Rand’s essential position on any given issue, The Ayn Rand Lexicon (edited by Harry Binswanger and originally published in book form in 1986) isolates key passages from her writing and arranges them topically.

You can explore the Lexicon on the ARI Campus website. Clicking on a topic takes you to one or more quotations from Rand or other Objectivists, clarifying the essential Objectivist position on that topic. Related terms are suggested for your further clicking pleasure.
