À propos

The foundations of capitalism are being battered by a flood of altruism, which is the cause of the modern world's collapse. This is the view of Ayn Rand, a view so radically opposed to prevailing attitudes that it constitutes a major philosophic revolution. In this series of essays, she presents her stand on the persecution of big business, the causes of war, the default of conservatism, and the evils of altruism. Here is a challenging new look at modern society by one of the most provocative intellectuals on the American scene.

This edition includes two articles by Ayn Rand which did not appear in the hardcover edition: The Wreckage of the Consensus," which presents the Objectivists views on Vietnam and the draft; and Requiem for Man," an answer to the Papal encyclical Progresso Populorum.

Née en Russie en 1905, Ayn Rand émigre aux États-Unis après la révolution bolchévique. Scénariste, romancière mais aussi philosophe, elle est à l'origine du mouvement objectiviste qui prône un capitalisme individualiste. Ses romans La source vive et La Grève ont été deux best-sellers aux États-Unis.
