Ayn Rand and the Is-Ought Problem
Although ethical systems may be divided into those which claim to be objective and those which freely acknowledge their own subjectivity, a special place must be reserved for an ethical system such as that of Ayn Rand which takes its name from this central claim to objectivity—Objectivism.
