Several textbooks (Booch 1994; Jacobson et. al. 1992; Rumbaugh et. al. 1991) on Object-Oriented programming (OOP) refer the reader interested in the epistemological foundations of this discipline to Ayn Rand’s Introduction to Objectivist Epistemology ([1966–67] 1990).  At the 1995 Summer Seminar of the Institute for Objectivist Studies, Robert Hartford presented a participant paper on Objectivist epistemology and OOP, focused on Ayn Rand’s use of “Conceptual Common Denominators” and analogous application of the techniques of inheritance in OOP.  Readily apparent correspondences between several aspects of OOP and Objectivist epistemology have led to extensive but not always well-informed speculation, in Internet Web sites and newsgroups, about their relationship. To resolve these issues, I asked Alan Kay and other pioneers of OOP about the historical facts. The results of my queries, and related observations about the cross-applicability of logical techniques based on Objectivist epistemology and OOP, are detailed below.
