I'm continuing my effort to read all the books by Ayn Rand, and the next one on my list was For the New Intellectual. It was a pretty short read and actually mostly excerpts from her novels.
It started with a high-level overview of the epistemology contained within her novels and an overview of the history of philosophy. The overall tone sounded pessimistic as her comments about the contemporary world in which she wrote implied that the morality of the majority of society was really moving in the wrong direction (I can only imagine how she would react to seeing the world today).
Even though most of the book was excerpts from other books I had read already, it was nice to see which sections the author herself wanted to highlight and to refresh my memory as well about some of the central concepts.
