You may already know of Ayn Rand as author of The Fountainhead or Atlas Shrugged. But did you know that Rand wrote two other novels, plus many nonfiction essays on topics ranging from moral virtue to the 1969 moon landing to the impact of Progressive education to the ideas driving rampant inflation to the persecution of “big business” to the role of art in human life? This lesson is a light, informal conversation about Rand’s novels and nonfiction, with special emphasis on three of her most popular collections of essays: The Virtue of Selfishness, Capitalism: The Unknown Ideal and Philosophy: Who Needs It.
