Question on Ayn Rand

3 posts in this topic

I read recently that later in life Ayn Rand was investigating mathematics, accepting tutoring in some respects. Does anyone know if she discussed this effort- if there are any published notes or thoughts on mathematics? If any particular area interested her the most?

THX.

None that I know of. She was just getting started.

Abstract algebra, specifically algebraic structures, if I remember well. Possibly in relation to the problem of concept formation.
