Ayn Rand's Education

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Her college transcripts are available somewhere and I seem to remember that someone correlated them with classes and teachers given at the time. She herself made only some oblique references to her studies, noting that she read extensively in Aristotle and trudged through Kant for some book review.

She had a history degree from a Russian or Soviet college (I can't remember the exact year that she graduated but it was probably Soviet given that she would have been 12 at the time of the revolution.) She also noted that she was a voracious reader, so I wouldn't doubt that she'd read a lot of philosophy given her obvious interest in the subject.
