reason.on Posted August 30, 2006 Share Posted August 30, 2006 Just curious to know if anyone has read this title from 2005? If anyone is interested, Josh Z has an interview with the author here: http://www.theatlasphere.com/columns/05010...o-cookinham.phphttp://www.diesel-ebooks.com/cgi-bin/item/0595798543The Age of Rand: Imagining an Objectivist Future WorldBy Frederick CookinhamSynopsis"Do I think that Objectivism will be the philosophy of the future? I would say yes, but..."--Ayn Rand to Playboy Magazine, 1964."My views will probably be the norm in the future, but not right now."--Ayn Rand to Johnny Carson, 1967.Will they? "The Age of Rand" describes what Ayn Rand's philosophy, Objectivism, will mean in practice--for good and ill. Rand expressed her controversial ideas in her best-selling novels, "Atlas Shrugged" and "The Fountainhead." Every year, more commentators debate those ideas, often heatedly.Frederick Cookinham asks questions no author has asked before:· Would Objectivists destroy the environment in favor of rampant development?· Why will Objectivist civilization be built on the oceans and in space?· Is Objectivism a "Nietzschean Superman" philosophy?Ayn Rand often said, "Check your premises, and watch your implications!" Explore, in "The Age of Rand," the astounding implications of this fast-growing and provocative new system of ideas. Some philosophy will dominate this new century--be prepared if it turns out to be Ayn Rand's."Frederick Cookinham has written something of great worth to thousands who have been affected by Rand's work."--Andrea Millen Rich, Laissez Faire Books.
