Once here, she never left and began to develop her own ideas of how men and women should live and the rules by which they should govern themselves.
Objectivism in One Lesson: An Introduction to the Philosophy of Ayn Rand
Her great dislike of the way Lenin ruled Russia led her to develop an entirely different view of how government and society should function; one that she introduces in her novel The Fountainhead. Part morality tale, part age old story of good versus evil and part a doctrine of a philosophy that many have come to embrace, the story of Howard Roark, his longing to create, and his eventual destruction of his most worthy creation is a gripping saga that high school students, especially those with a love of reading, and perhaps a twinge of teenage selfishness, will greatly enjoy and even relate to in one way or another.
However, before handing them the novel, it is best to use the downloadable power point to review Objectivism itself and to make sure students understand the philosophy they are going to get to know intimately in this novel. Once you are sure that they have some understanding, you can distribute the Objectivism quiz; I never counted as a grade, I just let them work on it in small groups together as a way to reinforce their understanding of the major tenets of Objectivism.

In layman's terms, using vivid examples, Andrew Bernstein clearly explains the brilliant ideas that animate the Conflict and characters of Anthem, The Fountainhead, and Atlas Shrugged. Objectivism in One Lesson shows the life-giving power of Ayn Rand's philosophy, a power that dictators of every degree--from abusive parents to statist politiciansdo not want an individual to discover. Bernstein's brilliant book helps the individual understand the revolutionary ideas present in The Fountainhead and Atlas Shrugged and thereby take control of his thinking, his mental health, and indeed, his life.
It clearly explains Ayn Rand's philosophy of reason, self-interest, and capitalism that businessmen need to validate the moral rightness of their productive, profit-generating work. In a contemporary and readable fashion, Objectivism in One Lesson presents the moral propriety of capitalism, profit, and rational self-interest. Bernstein's refreshing take will benefit both the start-up and the CEO.
What is Kobo Super Points?
This is the perfect book for those inspired by Ayn Rand's novels but who don't yet understand the philosophy behind the fiction. Bernstein's unique achievement is to take Rand's complex philosophical system and to explain it in terms that ordinary people can understand. Bernstein demonstrates with crystal clear prose and provocative examples drawn from everyday life that Objectivism is the only philosophy that supports the true American spirit of liberty.
Bernstein's book gives him just that, making its fundamentals clear and accessible. His master-stroke is to identify the theme of Rand's philosophy--"man's rational mind is his sole means of gaining knowledge, survival, and happiness"--and to use this principle as a the core around which to organize his exposition. I will certainly use this book in my courses. A little gem. Standard International Shipping. Special financing available Select PayPal Credit at checkout to have the option to pay over time.
