About the Author
Born February 2, 1905, Ayn Rand published her first novel, We the Living, in 1936. Anthem followed in 1938. It was with the publication of The Fountainhead (1943) and Atlas Shrugged (1957) that she achieved her spectacular success. Rand’s unique philosophy, Objectivism, has gained a worldwide audience. The fundamentals of her philosophy are put forth in three nonfiction books, Introduction to Objectivist Epistemology, The Virtues of Selfishness, and Capitalism: The Unknown Ideal. They are all available in Signet editions, as is the magnificent statement of her artistic credo, The Romantic Manifesto.

The comments about the more recent struggle arising with the current generation of campus leftists give an important perspective that helps to understand the philosophical errors and failures of both sets of leftists.
I was telling one of my doctor buddies that Rand has a great theory of cognitive development in kids.
He says, "Did Rand have any kids?"
Him, "Did she do research in cognitive development."
Him, "Wasn't she addicted to speed?"
Me, "I don't know."
Him, "She sounds like an impressive expert."
Me, "I read tons of stuff on cognitive development, and Rand's article on brain development between the ages of 3-7 years old, is the best I've ever read. It fills in the gaps that you won't find from reading anyone else. Rand is a genius."
Refutation of Nietzsche on "Apollo vs Dionysus" was also great!
