  • Description: This book is written in the form of a dialog among four fictional characters: Dr. Stanford, "a history professor;" Miss Doxa, "an intense young woman lawyer;" Penelope, "a much prettier younger woman and also millionairess through inheritance;" and Mr. Philosophus, "a distinguished looking gentleman of indeterminate age." Among them, these characters explain the author's interpretations and criticisms of Rand's ideas. Erickson's own philosophy of "Factivity" is introduced as a supposedly superior alternative to Objectivism.

Contents

The narrative account of the dialog unfolds over several days. Hence the description of the chapters as "Day I," "Day II," etc.
