As with any philosophy, one must be critical,
By A Customer
This review is from: Ayn Rand Lexicon (Meridian) (Paperback)
Ayn Rand does offer many interesting points in her writings (which this volume sums up). However,though to any reasonable person objective truth does exist (naturally only an idiot would claim that gravity exists only in our minds) morality and other aspects of the human condition exist solely in the mind. Good, evil, love, hate, spirit all are cultural constructs . . . objective morality is a contradiction in terms. Though Ms Rand has added much to 20th century philosophy, and is (in my mind) severely underrated in established philosophical circles, as well as overrated in her followers'her philosophy (as with any other)has its good points, but cannot, in its entirety, stand up to critical thought . . . and reason.
