Understanding Objectivism: A Guide to Learning Ayn Rand's Philosophy Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Ayn Rands philosophy of Objectivism is increasingly influencing the shape of the world from business and politics to achieving personal goals. Here, Leonard Peikoff—Rands heir—explains how you can communicate philosophical ideas with conviction, logic, and, most of all, reason.

Based on a series of lectures presented by Peikoff, Objective Communication shows how to apply Objectivist principles to the problem of achieving clarity both in thought and in communication.

Peikoff teaches readers how to write, speak, and argue on the subject of philosophical ideas—ideas pertaining to profoundly important issues ranging from the question of the existence of God to the nature and proper limits of government power.

Including enlightening discussions of a wide range of Objectivist topics—such as the primacy of consciousness, the pitfalls of rationalistic thinking, and the true meaning of the word “altruism,” as well as in-depth analysis of some of Ayn Rands own writings—Peikoffs Objective Communication is essential reading for anyone interested in Ayn Rands philosophy.

Synopsis:

“A truly revolutionary idea…. Clear, tight, disciplined, beautifully structured, and brilliantly reasoned.” —Ayn Rand

 

Self-sacrifice, Oriental mysticism, racial “truth,” the public good, doing ones duty—these are among the seductive catchphrases that circulated in pre-Nazi Germany. Objectivist author and philosopher Leonard Peikoff was Ayn Rands long-time associate. In The Cause of Hitlers Germany—previously published in The Ominous Parallels—Peikoff demonstrates how unreason and collectivism led the seemingly civilized German society to become a Nazi regime.

Synopsis:

Based on a series of lectures given in 1983 by Dr. Leonard Peikoff, Understanding Objectivism offers a deeper and more profound study of Ayn Rand's philosophy, and outlines a methodology of how to approach the study of Objectivism and apply its principles to one's life.

For the legions of readers who treasure Atlas Shrugged and The Fountainhead, and who savor cogent analysis and provocative discussion of Ayn Rand's thoughts and beliefs, Understanding Objectivism takes the stimulating study of Rand's philosophy to the next level.
