Ayn Rand: My Hero
Published on : Friday, July 24, 2009
Ayn Rand is, to me, more than merely the author of those great books. Thanks to Ayn Rand, I came to appreciate that happiness – defined by her as a state of noncontradictory joy – is not merely important, but the only purpose for living. All principles, ideas and actions must serve this purpose, writes Michael J Hurd in the Capitalism Magazine.
Back to the fountainhead
Published on : Monday, October 29, 2007
For most of us who read Ayn Rand’s We The Living, Fountainhead, Atlas Shrugged and Anthem over and over again in our very impressionable years, it is surely an eye opener to find these books edging out current potboilers on display racks in the leading bookstores. So, who is reading Rand and why? And could some of her tenets be applied to the work lives of corporates today, writes Rita Bhimani in The Telegraph.

Ayn Rand's Contribution to the Cause of Freedom
Published on : Wednesday, February 02, 2005
The most controversial aspect of Rand's philosophyher rejection of altruism and her embrace of ethical egoisms also one of the most misunderstood. For Rand, the Aristotelian recognition of properly understood human interests as rationally harmonious was the essential foundation for a free society. It's a mistake, though, to think that the validation of Rand's legacy depends on academic approval. Human progress is often driven by people either outside or on the margins of the academic establishment, writes Roderick T Long for the Ludwig von Mises Institute.
