Binswanger explains Ayn Rand’s definition of “knowledge” and the relationship between knowledge and the axioms of existence and consciousness. He discusses three possible attitudes toward knowledge and shows why only one of them is correct. Binswanger also stresses why the principle of “the primacy of existence” is essential for a proper view of knowledge.
