Corey Robin, author of the recent Nation article “Garbage and Gravitas,” discusses Ayn Rand’s philosophy and compares her writing to “kitsch”—a second rate product that tries to pass itself off as high culture. Unlike other noted philosophers, Rand was “ultimately interested in selling herself” and often touted herself as the most brilliant thinker since Aristotle.
