Ayn Rand has a truly one of a kind mind and her focus and intelligence are unmatched. Her theories are fascinating and it is too bad more people do not examine them for themselves. She is a polarizing figure (as the extremity of the views, 1 or 5 stars, show) so I don't think my review will sway people one way or the other, but it is significant to see other fields, such as psychology and the science of expertise starting to recognize the importance of concepts in human life.
Highly recommend this book. Her insight and clarity make all of her writings worth reading. It's only too bad she only devoted less than 90 pages to such an important topic. Also, the expanded edition is great because it includes numerous questions from follow on seminars she gave. The questions help the reader understand the topics better and also show insight to Rand's thinking methods.
Notwithstanding you opinion about how emotion can affect the application of reason in solving problems, Ayn Rand's epistemology is the gold standard in understanding the role of reason.
I give the book to the children in my extended family when they reach the milestone of passing from adolescence to adulthood.
This work outlines the manner in which humans learn and understand their environment by focusing on the development of man's mind, giving clear definitions and processes under which a human learns.
