Ayn Rand’s Unique View of Causality

Mike Mazza

Presented at: OCON 2021

Date: Aug 30, 2021

The dominant view of causality today is that it is a relation that holds between successive events. But that’s not Ayn Rand's view. For her, causation is the relationship between the nature of an action and the acting entity. How do these views relate, and how can we decide which is correct? This talk answers these questions and explores some of the unique features of the Objectivist view of causality.
