I have always thought, seeing how succesful Mankind is in the growth of the so called exact sciences, as opposed to the catastrophe we have in Ethics and Politics, that these two extremely important subjects should be given to the engineers and scientists responsible for landing Man on the Moon, for their study and development.
That is exactly what Ayn Rand has given pekioff. For the first time Philosophy is an exact science. It is simply a Science, if science is knowlege, objectiviem and unadulterated.

A neglected but vitally important book, for those who believe in Reason and Freedom, and who have hope for the future of mankind. If you love Reason and logical argument, you’ll love this book.
