This brilliantly conceived and well-organized book is based on a lecture course given by Dr. Leonard Peikoff in 1976, prepared with the help of Ayn Rand and entitled "The Philosophy of Objectivism." Ayn Rand said of these lectures: "Until or unless I write a comprehensive treatise on my philosophy, Dr. Peikoff's course is the only authorized presentation of the entire theoretical structure of objectivism--that is, the only one that I know to be fully accurate." As Rand's designated heir and foremost interpreter, Peikoff here reveals both the abstract fundamentals of objectivism and its practical applications, covering topics from certainty to money, from logic to art. With much new material that Rand offered only in private conversations with Peikoff, these clear, cogent chapters illuminate objectivism and its creator with startling clarity.… (més)

A comprehensive overview of Ayn Rand's Objectivist philosophy. ( )
  fduniho | Dec 29, 2008 |
Peikoff describes how philosophy is the only field abstract enough to cover everything else and very succinctly conveys Ayn's ideas about the debate between Plato and Aristotle as it has progressed through the ages. Kant set the stage for the modern era and the ideas of Aristotle were never fully recognized because they were not quite fully connected back to the basic axioms. ( )

A thorough presentation of Ayn Rand's philosophy of Objectivism, from its foundational axioms in metaphysics, to its views on epistemology, ethics, politics, and art. Logically organized and easily readable. Leonard Peikoff, the author of this book, was a friend and student of Ayn Rand's for over 30 years, and was designated by her as her "intellectual heir", so no one is better qualified than he is to write this book ( )

"The book presents Ayn Rand's entire philosophy, building it up step by step from its axiomatic base to its value-implications for man's life—from 'existence exists' to egoism in ethics, capitalism in politics and Romanticism in esthetics. The 12 terse chapter headings are indicative of the book's essentialized, absolutist approach: Reality, Sense Perception and Volition, Concept-Formation, Objectivity, Reason, Man, The Good, Virtue, Happiness, Government, Capitalism, and Art. The book is the product and pinnacle of a lifetime devoted to understanding Objectivism."

(Preface): Ayn Rand's philosophy has changed thousands of lives, including mine own, and has the power to change the course of history.
Philosophy is not a bauble of the intellect, but a power from which no man can abstain.
