  • Cover Blurb:

    AYN RAND challenged the prevalent philosophical doctrines of our time and the "atmosphere of guilt, of panic, of despair, of boredom, and of all-pervasive evasion" which they created. One of the most controversial figures on the intellectual scene, Ayn Rand was the proponent of a new 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 new morality -- "a philosophy for living on earth" -- are here vibrantly set forth by the spokesman FOR THE NEW INTELLECTUAL. (From a Signet paperback printing.)
