Abstract/Summary

This paper unfolds important aspects of the individual in an Objectivist's view. In essence, objectivism is the concept of a person as a heroic being with happiness as the moral purpose of life, with productive achievements as noblest activity and reason as the only absolute. The individual is alive wherever and whenever a person reflects about existence and seeks the answers to the problems of changing reality. The individual has inalienable right which should not rule nor be ruled by anyone. However, the individual is not just a thinker. Rapport of Rand's self with Filipino loob is of crucial factor for a truly independent and free individual. Loob is the Filipinos' self the seat of thinking and emotions.
