We study Ayn Rand for the same reason we study Creationism

Alan Wolfe on Ayn Rand:

In the academy, she is a nonperson. Her theories are works of fiction. Her works of fiction are theories, and bad ones at that. Should the Republicans actually win in 2012, we might need to study her in the academic world. It would be for the same reason we sometimes need to study creationism.
