The Contested Legacy of Ayn Rand: Truth and Toleration in Objectivismby David Kelley
At long last, with the much-anticipated second edition of David Kelley’s original manifesto Truth and Toleration, one of Objectivism’s seminal tracts is now available in a new and expanded edition. The Contested Legacy of Ayn Rand is an engaging introduction to the Objectivist movement, its core ideas, and its central fissures. At the same time, it offers a case study in the sociology of intellectual movements and a frank discussion of the issues that arise whenever thinkers leave their studies to promote their ideas in the public realm.
