Ayn Rand here sets forth the moral principles of Objectivism, the philosophy that holds human life, the life proper to a rational being, as the standard of moral values and regards altruism as incompatible with human nature, with the creative requirements of survival, and with a free society. Ms. Rand's unique philosophy, Objectivism, has gained a worldwide audience. The fundamentals of her philosophy are set forth in this and three other nonfiction books: Introduction to objectivist epistemology, For the new intellectual, and Capitalism: The unknown ideal
