Feminist Interpretations of Ayn Rand Mimi Gladstein and Chris Matthew Sciabarra (eds.) Penn State Press, 1999.
Of all my essays, this is the one that is most downloaded, even more than the essay on The Matrix. And this is more than a decade after it was published. According to Chris Sciabarra, this essay remains one of the most original and provocative texts ever published about the ideas of Ayn Rand, generating published academic debate and vitriolic denunciations by followers of Rand. Perhaps I should start selling this essay!
Sciabarra requested a follow-up essay on Rand's utopian theory of art and aesthetics, which was published in the Journal of Ayn Rand Studies (Vol 2.2, 2001) with the title: "Guggenheims and Grand Canyons."
