John Galt
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Jump to: navigation, search
For the Scottish novelist of the same name, see John Galt (novelist).

John Galt is a fictional character in Ayn Rand's novel Atlas Shrugged (1957). Although he is absent from much of the text, he is the subject of the novel's often repeated question "Who is John Galt?" and of the quest to discover the answer.
As the plot unfolds, Galt is acknowledged to be a creator and inventor who symbolizes the power and glory of the human mind. He serves as an idealistic counterpoint to the social and economic structure depicted in the novel. The depiction portrays a society based on oppressive bureaucratic functionaries and a culture that embraces stifling mediocrity and egalitarianism, which the novel associates with socialistic idealism. In the novel's ideology, the industrialists of America were a metaphorical Atlas of Greek mythology, holding up the sky, whom Galt convinces to "shrug," by refusing to lend their productive genius to the regime any longer.
