In this paper, there shall have in-depth dissuasion on the Objectivism theory by a Russian
writer named Ayn Rand. In her fiction, Rand expressed objectivism whereby she was inferring to
it as a closed system not subjected to any chance (Rand, 1964). According to Rand, Objectivism
central tenets exists independently uttering that human beings have contact directly aligned to
perceptions hence one can attain knowledge (objective) from perceptions via conceptual
formations to an inductive reasoning. Thus, the moral grounding and purpose of one’s living are
pursuing own happiness with the only system (social) consistent with morality relays respect to
the human rights. Rands’ use of objectivism being an idea that man’s value and knowledge are
objective insinuating their existence are determined by the nature of true. This is discovered from
an individual’s mind and not created by an individual’s thought.
The philosophy behind Rand’s Objectivism theory is on the existence of axioms,
specifically three inclusive of consciousness, existence and identity. According to Rand, an
axiom is a statement identifying knowledge base and any further utterance linked to this
knowledge. She meant that an axiom is a proposition defeating its opponents by the logic that
they have to accept and later use it while in the denial process (Rand, 1988). On the existence
axiom, Rand directs this term to insinuate a perception of self-evidence on facts at bases of all
other knowledge. Consciousness axiom refers to the faculty of perceiving that which is already
in existence. Last axiom identity hails from causation from the act and cause-effect hence in
every action, there is an action to the entity.
The reasoning behind Rands’ theory of objectivism is that knowledge attaining beyond
the given calls for free will together with adherence to various methods through concept
formations, observations and applying deductive or inductive resonance.
This theory holds various weak points inclusive of where it points out that most issues are
individual thus not true as some of the problems we encounter are communal hence need
solutions linked to communal. Another weak point of Rand’s...
