Ayn Rand Institute

Booth #205

The Ayn Rand Institute fosters an awareness, understanding and acceptance of Ayn Rand’s philosophy of Objectivism in order to create a culture whose guiding principles are reason, rational self-interest, individualism and laissez-faire capitalism­­—a culture in which individuals are free to pursue their own happiness. ARI, a 501(c)(3) organization, focuses on areas that have an increasing impact on the direction of our culture—notably, the areas of education and policy. The education system conveys the basic ideas by which people try to make sense of their lives and the world. By engaging students, educators and scholars, ARI works to achieve a large-scale and enduring influence. Beyond public policy sound bites and election cycles, one can discover the fundamental moral ideas that frame crucial debates. By reframing those debates in line with the principles of rational egoism and individual rights—ARI is laying the foundations of a free society.
