The Philosophic Thought of Ayn Rand

Author(s): Douglas J. Den Uyl (Editor); Douglas B. Rasmussen (Editor)


"An excellent book that provides a systematic account of Rand's work as a philosopher.... The Philosophic Thought of Ayn Rand gathers contributions from professional philosophers (some of them quite renowned) to tackle the various components --- metaphysical/epistemological, ethical, and social/political --- of Rand's comprehensive system. All the contributors demonstrate the particular genius of current academic philosophy: the painstaking and meticulous analysis of assumptions with an eye toward the coherence and consistency of the conclusions derived therefrom.... Thorough and judicious, this book will provide the reader with the intellectual leverage necessary to understand an often confusing, always controversial, occasionally original, and perhaps curiously contemporary writer and thinker." -- Lloyd Lewis, Modern Fiction Studies
