Ayn Rand könyvei a rukkolán


Ayn Rand - The ​Fountainhead
This ​is Ayn Rand's story of Howard Roark, a brilliant architect who dares to stand alone against the hostility of second-hand souls. First published in 1943, this best-selling novel is a passionate defense of individualism and presents an exalted view of man's creative potential; it is a book about ambition, power, gold and love.

Ayn Rand - The ​Virtue Of Selfishness
The ​Virtue of Selfishness: A New Concept of Egoism is a 1964 collection of essays and papers by Ayn Rand and Nathaniel Branden. Most of the essays originally appeared in The Objectivist Newsletter, except for "The Objectivist Ethics", which was a paper Rand delivered at the University of Wisconsin during a symposium on "Ethics in Our Time". The book covers ethical issues from the perspective of Rand's Objectivist philosophy. Some of its themes include the identification and validation of egoism as a rational code of ethics, the destructiveness of altruism, and the nature of a proper government.

Ayn Rand - We ​the Living
Depicting ​the daily struggle of the individual against a tyrannical dictatorship, We the Living shows the terrible impact of a revolution on three people who demand the right to live their own lives and pursue their happiness. Kira, determined to maintain her independence and courageous in the face of starvation and poverty; Leo, upper class and paralysed by state repression; and Andrei, an idealistic communist and officer in the secret police who nonetheless wants to help his friends.

Ayn Rand - For ​the New Intellectual
This ​is Ayn Rand's challenge to the prevalent philosophical doctrines of our time and the 'atmosphere of guilt, of panic, of despair, of boredom, and of all-pervasive evasion' that they create. One of the most controversial figures on the intellectual scene, Ayn Rand was the proponent of a moral philosophy--and ethic of rational self-interest--that stands in sharp opposition to the ethics of altruism and self-sacrifice. The fundamentals of this morality--'a philosophy for living on Earth'--are here vibrantly set forth by the spokesman for a new class, For the New Intellectual.

Ayn Rand - Veszett ​világ
Ayn ​Rand korszakalkotó regénye - amely először 1957-ben jelent meg - több mint négy évtizede bestseller, és egyúttal intellektuális mérföldkő. Olyan emberről szól, aki azt mondta, hogy megállítja a világ motorját - és megtette. Vajon pusztító vagy a legnagyobb felszabadító volt? Miért kellett az ellenségei helyett azokkal megvívnia a csatáját, akik leginkább hiányolták - és miért kellett legkeményebb csatáját az ellen a nő ellen megvívnia, akit szeretett? Mi egyáltalán a világ motorja - és minden ember hajtóereje? Ez a roppant távlatokat átölelő regény emberi életek és sorsok bámulatba ejtő panorámáját tárja elénk: az értéktelen világfivá váló teremtő géniusztól... a nagy acélgyárosig, aki nem tudja, hogy saját pusztulásáért dolgozik... a filozófusig, aki kalózzá válik... a zeneszerzőig, aki megdicsőülése éjszakáján mond le a karrierjéről... a nőig, aki egy transzkontinentális vasutat irányít... a pályaudvar alagútjainak legalacsonyabb pályamunkásáig. Az emberfeletti hősök és gazemberek kavalkádja, a jó és a rossz feltornyosuló kérdéseit feszegető Veszett világ Ayn Rand mesterműve. Ez a regény valóságos filozófiai forradalom, akció-thriller formában elbeszélve.

Ayn Rand - Philosophy
This ​collection of essays was the last work planned by Ayn Rand before her death in 1982. In it, she summarizes her view of philosophy and deals with a broad spectrum of topics. According to Ayn Rand, the choice we make is not whether to have a philosophy, but which one to have: rational, conscious, and therefore practical; or contradictory, unidentified, and ultimately lethal. Written with all the clarity and eloquence that have placed Ayn Rand's Objectivist philosophy in the mainstream of American thought, these essays range over such basic issues as education, morality, censorship, and inflation to prove that philosophy is the fundamental force in all our lives.

Ayn Rand - The ​Romantic Manifesto
In ​this beautifully written and brilliantly reasoned book, Ayn Rand throws a new light on the nature of art and its purpose in human life. Once again Miss Rand eloquently demonstrates her bold originality and her refusal to let popular catchwords and conventional ideas stand between her and the truth as she has discovered it. The Romantic Manifesto takes its place beside The Fountainhead and Atlas Shrugged as one of the most important achievements of our time.

Ayn Rand - Three ​Plays
Published ​together for the first time are three of Ayn Rand's three compelling stage plays. Written in 1933, and a Broadway success in 1935, Night of January 16th, is presented here in its definitive, final revised text-a superb dramatic objectification of Ayn rand's vision of human strength and weakness, a play famous for the author's refusal to prearrange a dramatized verdict, leaving the solution to the audience. Also included are two of Rand's unproduced plays: Think Twice (1939), a philosophical murder mystery, and Ideal (1934), the author's bitter indictment of people's willingness to betray their highest values, symbolized by a Hollywood goddess seemingly fleeing the authorities.

Ayn Rand - Anthem
He ​lived in the dark ages of the future. In a loveless world he dared to love the woman of his choice. In an age that had lost all trace of science and civilization he had the courage to seek and find knowledge. But these were not the crimes for which he would be hunted. In a future where there is no love, no science, and everyone is equal and of one entity, one man defies the group to be his own person. That is a serious offense. Written with all the power and conviction that made The Fountainhead a classic of American letters, Ayn Rand's Anthem is a hymn to man's independent spirit and to the highest word in the human language - "Ego." First written in 1937, Anthem was published in England, but was refused in publication in America, for reason which the reader might discover by reading it for himself. In 1946, it appeared as a pamphlet, issued by Pamphleteers, Inc., of Los Angeles. This is its first American publication in regular book form. Anthem tells the story of a man who rediscovers the individualism and his own "I" - in a world of absolute collectivization, a world where sightless, joyless, selfless men exist for the sake of serving the State; where their work, their food and their mating are prescribed to them by order of the Collective's rulers in the name of society's welfare - a world which has lost all the achievements of science and civilization, when it lost their root, the independent mind, and has reverted to primitive savagery - a world where language contains no singular pronouns, where the "We" has replaced the "I," and where men are put to death for the crime of discovering and speaking the "unspeakable word." The story tells of one man who rebelled, of his struggle and his victory. Assigned to the life work of street sweeper by the rulers who resented his brilliant, questioning, unsubmissive mind - he becomes a scientist, secretly, risking his life for the sake of his quest for knowledge. In the midst of collective stagnation, where men toil at manual labor by the light of candles - he discovers electricity. In the midst of eugenic planning and State-controlled Palaces of Mating - he discovers a personal love and a woman of his own choice. In the midst of brutal morality which proclaims that man is only a sacrificial animal to the needs of others - he discovers that man's greatest moral duty is the pursuit of his own happiness. He endures danger, denunciation, imprisonment, torture - but he breaks the chains of the Collective, he escapes with the woman he loves, to start a new life in an uncharted wilderness, and he reaches the day when he is able to predict that "my home will become the capital of a world where each man will be free to exist for his own sake. "Anthem presents not merely a frightening projection of existing trends, but, more importantly, a positive answer to those trends and a weapon against them, a key to the world's moral crisis and to a new morality of individualism - a morality which, if accepted today, will save us from a future such as the one presented in this story.

Ayn Rand - Atlas ​Shrugged
The ​story of a man who said he would stop the motor of the world--and did. This novel is the setting for the author's philosophy of Objectivism.

Ayn Rand - Capitalism
The ​foundations of capitalism are being battled by a flood of altruism, which is the cause of the modern worlds collapse. This is the view of AYN RAND, a view so radically opposed to prevailing attitudes that it constitutes a major philosophic revolution. In this series of essays, she presents her stand on the persecution of big business, the causes of war, the student rebellion, and the evils of altruism. Here is a challenging new look at modern society by one of the most provocative intellectuals on the American scene.

Ayn Rand - Fogoly ​lelkek
Ehhez a könyvhöz nincs fülszöveg, de ettől függetlenül még rukkolható/happolható.

Ayn Rand - Az ​ősforrás
A ​huszadik század egyik meghatározó irodalmi alkotása, Az ősforrás 1943-as megjelenése óta töretlen népszerűségnek örvend. A romantikus és filozofikus mű az 1930-as évek pezsgő időszakában, New York világvárossá válásának idején játszódik. Főhőse, Howard Roark, az alkotó szellemű, megalkuvást nem tűrő építész fáradhatatlanul harcol mindazok ellen, akik alávetik saját énjüket mások akaratának. Megingathatatlan személyiségének és kiállásának köszönhetően folyamatosan konfliktusokba keveredik riválisaival, leginkább az ambiciózus Dominique Franconnal, aki mindent megtenne azért, hogy háttérbe szorítsa őt. Rand nagyszabású regénye óda az individualizmushoz mint az előrelépés nélkülözhetetlen alapeleméhez, és az egyénhez, amely az emberi haladás mindenkori ősforrása… A szerző a következőképpen foglalta össze írásaiban is megnyilvánuló gondolatvilágát: „Filozófiám, lényegét tekintve, azon az elképzelésen alapul, miszerint az ember hősi lény, aki élete erkölcsi céljának saját boldogságát tekinti, legnemesebb tevékenységének alkotó teljesítményét tartja, és akinek egyetlen abszolútuma az értelem.”
