In immortal novels and timeless nonfiction, Ayn Rand demonstrated that our world can be one of reason and romance, passion and principle, heroism and happiness.

Her philosophy, Objectivism, boldly challenges the values, culture, and traditions of the past 2,500 years. Millions have been inspired by the vision of life in Ayn Rand's novels. Scholars are exploring the trails she blazed in philosophy and other fields.

Ayn Rand's novels present a liberating and inspiring vision of a rational society. Her books offer you insights in areas such as improving your skills in thinking, child-raising, or creativity, appreciating the arts, enriching your inner life. The root causes of political and cultural trends are ideas -- the fundamental ideas that guide people's choices and actions.

Capitalism is a value only to people who want to enjoy prosperity. Freedom is a value only to people who wish to pursue their own lives and happiness.

In other words, capitalism and freedom rest on the idea that self-interest is good.

Yet this clashes with conventional moral views, which hold that goodness consists of "service to others" -- and that self-interest is evil.

To defend capitalism and freedom fully, proudly, and consistently, we must reject the "ideal" of self-sacrifice. Why should we have an unchosen duty to serve others -- not because we value them, but merely because they exist? Why should one person's need be a claim on another's wealth?

Most spokesmen for liberty haven't dared to say these things. Instead, they argue "pragmatically" -- or even cynically, contending that the profit motive encourages greedy individuals to serve others. Typically, they apologize for, rather than champion, the free society.

With one notable exception.

    In her classic novels and timeless nonfiction, Ayn Rand presented a systematic moral case for human liberty. Her philosophy, Objectivism, advances a radical ethical principle: that each individual has a moral right to live for his own sake.

We have the moral right, she argued, to regard ourselvor there will be nothing to distribute. The need of the creator comes before the need of any possible beneficiary."

Ayn Rand challenges the doctrine that we are our brothers' keeper. No one can justly be saddled with that responsibility, and no honorable person wishes to be kept.

Ayn Rand shows why genuine benevolence is possible only when people regard each other as independe equals, not as sacrificial animals.

Anthem

A stunning and brilliantly realized future world in which individuality has been crushed is the theme of Ayn Rand's best-selling masterpiece, Anthem. For the first time in unabridged audio, Dercum Audio presents her tale of a man who dares to make individual choices, to seek knowledge in a dark age, to love the woman of his choice. In a society in which people have no name, no independence, and no values, he is hunted for the unpardonable crime: having the courage to stand above the crowd. This story presages Ayn Rand's later books, The Fountainhead and Atlas Shrugged.

Anthem: 50th Anniversary Edition

The Ayn Rand Lexicon: Objectivism from A to Z (Ayn Rand Library, Vol 4)

A prolific writer, bestselling novelist, and world-renowned philosopher, Ayn Rand defined a full system of thought -- from epistemology to aesthetics. Her writing is so extensive and the range of issues she covers so enormous that those interested in finding her discussions of a given topic may have to search through many sources to locate the relevant passage. THE AYN RAND LEXICON brings together all the key ideas of her philosophy of Objectivism. Begun under Rand's supervision, this unique volume is an invaluable guide to her philosophy or reason, self-interest and laissez-faire capitalism -- the philosophy so brilliantly dramatized in her novels The Fountainhead, We The Living, and Atlas Shrugged.

Capitalism: The Unknown Ideal

The first book to provide a MORAL basis for capitalism. The essence of this short book is to show that capitalism is the only social system consonant with man's nature as a rational being. Rand validates capitalism by showing that it is good in practice BECAUSE it is good in theory, i.e., the moral is the practical.

The Early Ayn Rand: A Selection from Her Unpublished Fiction (The Ayn Rand Library, Volume 2)

Though it's obvioulsy not Atlas or Fountainhead, this is a good read. For anyone who's looking for more Rand Fiction, it's short, interesting, and enjoyable. The style IS in some ways similar to O. Henry, which was an added bonus. Because, hey...I loved O. Henry. Though the book may not be as life altering as some of her others, it is still a very enjoyable collection.

For the New Intellectual

A must buy for rational thinkers. Rand supports conclusivly her stands on morality from their metaphisical bases in self-evident and undeniable axioms in her title essay. She goes to give a call to arms for all egoists, a sort of anti-commuist manifesto. She calls for the New Intellectuals to rise forth and to fight for reason and reality. Then she gives an apendix of the greatest intellectucal amunition, her famous speeches. An incredible summary of objectivism, second only to Atlas Shrugged itself.

Philosophy: Who Needs It Mass Market Paperback

Few books have effected me to the degree that Atlas Shrugged did. I followed that book we this intro. The first chapter that is the text of a speech that Ms Rand gave in 1974 to the West Point Cadets was particularly inspriring. The model of man and the world that Ms Rand presents is very motivational to anyone searching for an "integrated view of existance."
