I'm curious why Substantialism redirects to Objectivism. Dictionary.com refers to Substantialism in philosophy as "the doctrine that substantial noumena exist as a basis for phenomena." Especially in the sense of noumena which are themselves inaccessible to direct experience, this seems to go against the materialism generally defined by Objectivist philosophy--and against Ayn Rand's general dislike of Kant. I'm thinking that Substantialism merits its own article, separate to objectivism. Unfortunately, I'm not an expert on the topic. Any thoughts?--Pariah (talk) 21:55, 10 January 2008 (UTC)
