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.

    " this fleshes out the structure of objectivism, without any fiction to distract you, thus making it easier to disagree with the sad, drunk, and ironically sanctimonious Ayn Rand. "

    " Covers the ideas quite well. I considered myself an Objectivist for a number of years after reading a deluge of Rand's ideas. I learned a lot about thinking during this time, exploring base concepts such as writng a definition of the word "table". You never think about low level words, you just sort of know what they mean. How can you think clearly without having a solid foundation for your ideas? Words as abstractions are tools, but it is not the words, it is the abstrations that make higher level concepts possible. "
