Audiobook Summary:This is Ayn Rand's challenge to the prevalent philosophical doctrines of our time and the "atmosphere of guilt, of panic, of despair, of boredom, and of all-pervasive evasion" that they create. One of the most controversial figures on the intellectual scene, Ayn Rand was the proponent of a moral philosophy, an ethic of rational self-interest, that stands in sharp opposition to the ethics of altruism and self-sacrifice. The fundamentals of this morality, "a philosophy for living on earth", are here vibrantly set forth by the spokesman for a new class, For The New Intellectual . Miss Rand's unique philosophy, Objectivism, has gained a worldwide audience. The fundamentals of her philosophy are set forth in four nonfiction books: Introduction to Objectivist Epistemology , For the New Intellectual , The Virtue of Selfishness , and Capitalism: The Unknown Ideal .
