About The Objective Standard

The Objective Standard (TOS) is the preeminent source for commentary from an Objectivist perspective, Objectivism being Ayn Rand’s philosophy of reason, egoism, and capitalism.

Our quarterly, The Objective Standard, offers in-depth articles on politics, education, history, philosophy, self-improvement, and the arts; reviews of books, movies, and television shows; and interviews with intellectuals, activists, and politicians. Subscriptions start at $29 per year and are available in Website, Digital, Print, and Premium editions. (Back issues and single articles are available, as well, through our archives page.)

Our newsletter, TOS Weekly, features recent articles, videos, and announcements. The newsletter is free—simply join our mailing list to receive it.
