By Ayn Rand
Unabridged, professional reading.
Read by C.M. Hebert
Ayn Rand here sets forth the moral principles of Objectivism, the philosophy that holds man's life - the life proper to a rational being - as the standard of moral values and regards altruism as incompatible with man's nature, with the creative requirements of his survival, and with a free society.
