ISBN: 0385529465

Ayn Rand is best known as the author of the perennially bestselling novels The Fountainhead and Atlas Shrugged. Altogether, more than 12 million copies of the two novels have been sold in the United States. The books have attracted three generations of readers, shaped the foundation of the Libertarian movement, and influenced White House economic policies throughout the Reagan years and beyond. A passionate advocate of laissez-faire capitalism and individual rights, Rand remains a powerful force in the political perceptions of Americans today. Yet twenty-five years after her death, her readers know little about her life. In this seminal biography, Anne C. Heller traces the controversial author’s life from her childhood in Russia during the Bolshevik Revolution to her years as a screenwriter in Hollywood, the publication of her blockbuster novels, and the rise and fall of the cult that formed around her in the 1950s and 1960s. Throughout, Heller reveals previously unknown facts about Rand’s history and looks at Rand with new research and a fresh perspective. Based on original research in Russia, dozens of interviews with Rand’s acquaintances and former acolytes, and previously unexamined archives of tapes and letters, AYN RAND AND THE WORLD SHE MADE is a comprehensive and eye-opening portrait of one of the most significant and improbable figures of the twentieth century. From the Hardcover edition.

Ayn Rand Nation

Author : Gary Weiss
Publisher: St. Martin's Press

ISBN: 1429950781

Thirty years after her death in March 1982, Ayn Rand's ideas have never been more important. Unfettered capitalism, unregulated business, bare-bones government providing no social services, glorification of selfishness, disdain for Judeo-Christian morality—these are the tenets of Rand's harsh philosophy. In Ayn Rand Nation, Gary Weiss explores the people and institutions that remain under the spell of the Russian-born novelist. He provides new insights into Rand's inner circle in the last years of her life, with revelations of never-before-publicized predictions by Rand that still resonate today. Weiss charts Rand's infiltration of the Tea Party and Libertarian movements, and provides an inside look at the radical belief system that has exerted a powerful influence on the Republican Party and its presidential candidates. It's a fascinating cast of characters that ranges from Glenn Beck to Oliver Stone, and includes Rand's most influential disciple, Alan Greenspan. Weiss describes in penetrating detail how Greenspan became a stalking horse for Rand—slashing and burning regulations with ideological zeal, and then seeking to conceal her influence on his life and thinking. Lastly, Weiss provides a strategy for a renewed national dialogue, an embrace of the nation's core values that is needed to deal with Rand's pervasive grip on society. From The Fountainhead and Atlas Shrugged to Rand's lesser-known and misunderstood nonfiction books, Gary Weiss examines the impact of Rand's thinking across our society.

ISBN: 0812697987

Fifty-five years after Atlas Shrugged, Ayn Rand is more in the news than ever. Ayn Rand Explained is an accurate and riveting account of Rand’s life, work, and influence, with the emphasis on her ideas. The book covers Rand’s career, from youth in Soviet Russia to Hollywood screenwriter and then to ideological guru; her novels and other fiction writings; her work in ethics, epistemology, and metaphysics; her influence on--and personal animosity toward--both conservatism and libertarianism. Rand’s Objectivism encompasses the ethics of rational egoism ('The Virtue of Selfishness’); dedication to rational thinking and acting; rejection of faith in the supernatural, personal freedom from political interference, and a moral defense of limited government and laissez-faire. Objectivism was first promoted through the Nathaniel Branden Institute, headed by Rand’s young prot�g� and designated heir. The Institute’s phenomenally rapid growth was abruptly cut short when Rand expelled Branden and his followers in 1968. Today Objectivism is represented by different factions, notably the Ayn Rand Institute and the Atlas Society. This is a revised, updated edition of The Ideas of Ayn Rand (1991), including new information on Rand’s rocketing influence, new stories about her personal relationships, and new analysis of her life and ideas.

Ayn Rand remains a truly significant figure of modern philosophy. Her unique vision of a world in which man, relying on reason, acts wholly for his own good is skillfully developed and illustrated in her most famous novels, Atlas Shrugged and The Fountainhead. But Rand's first novel, We the Living, a lesser-known but no less important book, offers an early form of the author's nascent philosophy—the philosophy Rand later called Objectivism. In the second edition, Robert Mayhew once again brings together pre-eminent scholars of Rand's writing. The edition includes three new chapters, as well as an epilogue by renowned Rand-scholar Leonard Peikoff. In part a history of We the Living, from its earliest drafts to the Italian film later based upon it, Mayhew's collection goes on to explore the enduring significance of Rand's first novel as a work both of philosophy and of literature. For Ayn Rand scholars and fans alike, this enhanced second edition is a compelling examination of a novel that set the tone for some of the most influential philosophical literature to follow.

ABOUT THE BOOK Ayn Rand studied philosophy at university, and devoted much of her life to developing her own philosophy, known as Objectivism. In Rand's view, no one who does not have either an implicit or explicit worldview can adequately deal with life's problems. Hence, the titular essay of her book, Philosophy: Who Needs It? The original essay was delivered as an address to the graduating class of the United States Military Academy at West Point, in 1974. A recording of this talk, along with the subsequent Q&A, is also available. MEET THE AUTHOR Mia has two intersecting careers: She is a philosophy professor in the Philosophy/Sociology Department at Pierce College, and a freelance writer. Her combined skills, experience, and broad range of interests make me a thorough and efficient researcher, concept analyst and developer, and writer across a wide array of topics and subjects.Whether she writes fiction or non-fiction, her main interests involve societal issues and culture, primarily from a philosophical standpoint. What that means is that she not only attempts to investigate and inquire into the ideas that underpin or permeate certain issues and topics, but also to remain open to changing my her views. It is often the case that inquiry forces one to re-evaluate and amend one's beliefs. It can be a rather uncomfortable experience, but worthwhile nonetheless. Such is the case with Mia. She attempts to see where the topic at hand leads her, and questions what sort of method she uses in her investigation, and then draws a conclusion.Mia's philosophical interests range across metaphysical and epistemological subjects such as free will and moral responsibility, causation, conditionals, consciousness, personal identity, punishment, and metaphor, to contemporary issues such as same-sex marriage. She greatly enjoys conducting introductory courses in the history of philosophy, logic, and ethics. Perhaps her greatest satisfaction comes through connecting philosophical topics with the details of daily life we take for granted. Looking, for example, at the purpose of marriage yields interesting discussions about what it means to be human. Mia's Ph.D. is in Philosophy, and she teaches a broad range of subject areas in her discipline. Her freelance writing experience includes articles, essays, and ghostwriting (fiction and non-fiction). Please visit her Web site to learn more about her: www.girlzillawrites.com.Cheers! EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK Philosophy: Who Needs It? is a collection of conceptually connected essays by the writer, Ayn Rand. The majority of the essays build upon each other, with the titular piece introducing the reader, in some of the broadest strokes possible, to the general outlines of Objectivism, Rand's somewhat systematic theory of reality, knowledge, morality, politics, and education. Because Rand often utilizes terms in fairly specific ways, it is helpful to consult The Ayn Rand Lexicon. Another reason to peruse the lexicon is because, although Rand uses terms in specific ways, she rarely distinguishes the same terminology used differently by the philosophers she references. As a result, her references may be misleading, if you do not have a working knowledge of her definitions.
