An Analysis of Ayn Rand's Speech to the 1974 Graduating Class of West Point

Ayn Rand’s speech to the 1974 graduating class of West Point in which she proceeded to present several philosophical questions; as well as, ideals, stories of dying in space, and advice—all in one forty-minute speech. It seems vexing at first based on the heavy repetition, seeming lack of main idea, and overall boring tone the speech brings; however, despite most of these while skimming through the speech, Rand’s speech did in fact convey heavy rhetoric and did an exemplary job at connecting previous thoughts in the passage throughout the entirety of the speech.

Rand starts off her speech with a ‘short story’ about space travel that ends in the utter demise of the lonely astronaut. She does this to influence the audience to be more receptive and using this story as an example throughout the rest of her speech provided her with a good way to keep the speech interesting—even though her inherit tone is the opposite of interesting to say the least. Rand follows the short story with introducing the science that is philosophy, and she does this in a rather remarkable way; she began the introduction to philosophy by asking a series of simple questions then asking a curveball that has no right or wrong answer, but simply, one that can only be theoretically answered by philosophy.
