Collected after her death, this collection of essays summarizes Ayn Rand’s thoughts on the necessity of philosophy. She outlines her objectivist philosophy and explains that philosophy is necessary for all kinds of people. However, the type of philosophy we need is the most important thing. In her essays, she writes about how philosophy affects education, morality, censorship, and inflation, driving our lives in ways we have never imagined. This remains one of her deepest works in objectivism, and it is a testament to her prowess in the field of philosophy and mankind’s bare necessity to understand its place in the universe.
About Ayn Rand
Alisa Zinov'yevna Rosenbaum, better known to the world as Ayn Rand, was a Russian-American novelist, playwright, philosopher and screenwriter known for her books Atlas Shrugged and The Fountainhead.
Rand is considered one of the staunchest advocates for the triumph of reason as the only way to acquire true knowledge, rejecting faith and religion. Her ideals are embodied by the Objectivist Movement which seeks to spread them across the public and academia.
