Rand vs Einstein 1.2

Rand disagrees with Einstein.

Rand’s philosophy says on Pg 152, “Man’s knowledge is acquired by… the application of logic to experience… Hence the method man must follow… The method is logic-‘the art of non-contradictory identification’.”

This disagrees with Albert Einstein who said, “There is no logical path leading to [the highly universal laws of science]. They can only be reached by intuition, based upon something like an intellectual love of the objects of experience.”

Rand disagrees with Einstein.

Ayn Rand, An Introduction to Objective Epistemology, Signet Edition, New American Library. Also Ch. 2, the Analytic/Synthetic Dichotomy by Leonard Piekoff.
