Language: English

Publish: December 1, 1963


This is Ayn Rand’s challenge to the prevalent philosophical doctrines of our time and the “atmosphere of guilt, of panic, of despair, of boredom, and of all-pervasive evasion” that they create. One of the most controversial figures on the intellectual scene, Ayn Rand was the proponent of a moral philosophy – an ethic of rational self-interest – that stands in sharp opposition of the ethics of altruism and self-sacrifice. The fundamentals of this morality – “a philosophy for living on earth” – are here vibrantly set forth by the spokesman for a new class, “For the New Intellectual.”
