Ayn Rand Cult

Editora: Open Court Data de lançamento: 2012-03-30

Descrição

Despised by the intellectual establishment, Ayn Rand continues to attract many thousands of devoted followers. Her "e;Objectivist"e; movement preaches an uncompromising hard line on politics, art, sex, and psychological health. Though much has been written about Rand, The Ayn Rand Cult is the first book to explain the true origin of her ideas and to show how they were shaped into a new, atheistic religion. Jeff Walker shatters many myths about Rand, exposing Objectivism as a classic cult, unusual because of its overt emphasis on self-interest, rationality, and atheism, but typical of cults in its guru-worship, thought control, trial and excommunication of deviants, and hostility to existing society.
