ayn rand Rebirth of ReasonTM is an organization dedicated to the philosophy of Objectivism, a philosophy devoted to living on earth. The philosophy was developed by Ayn Rand, a novelist-philosopher in the 20th century.

RoR was founded in 2005 and is headquartered in Santa Clara, CA. You can find more information about RoR by going here.

Rebirth of Reason refers to Ayn Rand's description of the Renaissance.
The Renaissance was specifically the rebirth of reason, the liberation of man's mind, the triumph of rationality over mysticism - a faltering, incomplete, but impassioned triumph that led to the birth of science, of individualism, of freedom. - Ayn Rand
The site is created to be a tool for bringing about a new Renaissance. Our purpose is to advance the philosophy of Objectivism.

We also seek to be a microcosm of the world we want to create. The rebirth of reason starts here. If we want to create a better world, we must start with ourselves. If we want a healthier culture, we have to create it here. If we want to promote reason, accomplishment, and happiness, we need only look to ourselves.
