Product Description

From the Author

A mini-encylopedia of Ayn Rand's philosophy
An alphabetically organized compilation of excerpts culled from Ayn Rand's many articles, lectures, and books, this work presents the Objectivist view on some 400 topics in philosophy, politics, art, economics, and psychology--ranging from "Abortion" to "Zero, Reification of."
The Lexicon is both an intriguing introduction to Ayn Rand's thought for the newcomer and a comprehensive sourcebook for readers already familiar with Objectivist ideas.
Begun under Ayn Rand's personal supervision, this volume is a guide to her philosophy of reason, self-interest, and laissez-faire capitalism--the philosophy dramatized in her nolvels _The Fountainhead_ and _Atlas Shrugged_.

About the Author

AYN RAND is the author of "Anthem, The Fountainhead, " and "Atlas Shrugged", and numerous non-fiction essays on philosophy, ethics, politics, art, and literature. Her philosophy, Objectivism, has gained a worldwide audience of adherents and admirers. She died in March 1982.

Format: Paperback
This book is an excellent source for objectivist epistimology. Although it includes the work of Piekoff, Ayn Rand's intellectual heir, it is a worthy collection of Ayn Rand's groundbreaking philosophy. Personally, I deem it an indespensible work. Although I do not claim to be an objectivist yet, I do agree with Rand on nearly every issue. When I find that something has come along in my life that I'm not sure about, something ambiguous, I consult The Lexicon and usually am able to put the thought to rest. I'd recommend this book to ANYONE who follows objectivist idealogy in any way shape or form, and also to Rand's critics, so that they might have this extensive compendium for the measure of what it truely is: A COMPLETE resource of Rand thought and philosophy. Once again, EXCELLENT book. Buy it today!

When I recall Ayn Rand had something unique and cogent to say about some topic, but I can't remember where or her exact formulation, this is where I go to look it up. I find what I'm looking for in seconds. It is one of my most used reference books.

I would recommend this to Ayn Rand admirers, serious philosophy scholars (whether you love Rand or hate her), and anyone looking for some really interesting quotes.

Format: 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.

Format: Paperback
The book is filled with definitions, and quotations in context, on a wide array of topics.
Students of Objectivism will find most of the concepts from Rand's non-fiction books distilled and indexed alphabetically.
This book is a must-have if you take reality, reason, and your life seriously.
