â€œSubjectivism is the belief that reality is not a firm absolute, but a fluid, plastic, indeterminate realm which can be altered, in whole or in part, by the consciousness of the perceiver, â€" i.e., by his feelings, whishes, or whims. It is the doctrine which holds that man â€" an entity of a specific nature, dealing with a universe of a specific nature â€" can , somehow, live, act and achieve his goals apart from and/or in contradiction to the facts of reality, i.e., apart from and/or in contradiction to his own nature and the nature of the universeâ€¦â€ [Ayn Rand, â€œWho is the Final Authority in Ethics?â€ The Objectivist Newsletter, 1965]
