by Marc Stein
 

"Why Ayn Rand Is Wrong (and Why It Matters)" lays out three arguments against Ayn Rand's doctrine of rational self-interest, all revolving around the meaning of the word "self".

The author also argues that Ayn Rand's ideas deserve more respect and regard than they currently receive within the larger philosophy community, and suggests that those who disagree

Overview

"Why Ayn Rand Is Wrong (and Why It Matters)" lays out three arguments against Ayn Rand's doctrine of rational self-interest, all revolving around the meaning of the word "self".

The author also argues that Ayn Rand's ideas deserve more respect and regard than they currently receive within the larger philosophy community, and suggests that those who disagree with her tend to rely on insult and caricature rather than reason and logic in their challenge to Objectivist dogma. Levi Asher -- like Ayn Rand, a lay philosopher who loves a structured debate -- hopes this innovative book will help bring about a better dialogue between the many smart people around the world who believe in Ayn Rand, and the many smart people who don't.

A provocative, lively and bracing read for anyone who cares about ethics, philosophy and the work of Ayn Rand!

A constant innovator at the intersection of web culture and alternative literature, he has launched a number of unique projects including Queensboro Ballads (a story cycle in the form of a 1960s folk-rock album), Coffeehouse: Writings From The Web (the first anthology of web writing published in book form, in 1997) and Notes From Underground (a digital movie based on the Dostoevsky novel). Asher has also published a poetry chapbook, Tiger's Milk, and frequently performs at poetry readings around New York City and elsewhere. In 2011, Asher announced a new book publishing venture at Literary Kicks. The first published title was "Why Ayn Rand Is Wrong (and Why It Matters)".
