No. See the FAQs, or ?Startup, which says:

     Then, unless `--no-init-file' was given, R searches for a file
     called `.Rprofile' in the current directory or in the user's home
     directory (in that order) and sources it into the user workspace.

and you will now know about `home directory' from the rw-FAQ.
