Live: Ayn Rand Answers Questions

Robert Mayhew has edited an unique compilation of the best of Ayn Rand's question and answer periods. The Q&As are categorized into chapters drawn around broad themes such as politics, ethics, metaphysics and epistemology, aesthetics, etc., and then into smaller sub-sections. We can hear, almost, Ayn Rand on: ethics, economics, modern art, politics, philosophy, freedom of the press, foreign policy, Ronald Reagan, Booby Fisher, gun control, sports, and many more.

We can almost hear her! The volume also provides a snap shot of Ayn Rand as a person, at different times, responding to different issues. On display are her wit, warmth, patience as well as indignation and her brilliance. Having heard quite a few of Ayn Rand's lectures, along with questions and answer sessions on audio tapes many years ago, this book is a very welcome.

Read more about this new book: Ayn Rand Answers: The Best of her Q & A, by Ayn Rand, Edited by Robert Mayhew.

Dr. Harry Binswanger, a longtime associate of Ayn Rand, is a professor of philosophy at the Objectivist Academic Center of the Ayn Rand Institute, recently selected a sample set of Q&As from the book. Read the selection on Capitalism Magazine.
