Objectivism informed her dense novels, which still impact political thought.
Russian born American novelist and philosopher Ayn Rand (1905-1982) is best known for her books The Fountainhead and Atlas Shrugged. Ideologically, Rand was very critical of communism and an advocate of capitalism. These beliefs would lead her to develop a philosophy called Objectivism. Though many in academia have been critical of both her literary and philosophical work, she is still championed by many contemporary conservatives and libertarians.
