Atlas shrugged by Ayn Rand ( Book )
133 editions published between 1957 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 8,696 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This is the story of a man who said that he would stop the motor of the world, and did. Is he a destroyer or a liberator? Why does he have to fight his battle not against his enemys but against those who need him most? Why does he fight his hardest battle against the woman he loves? You will learn the answers to these questions when you discover the reason behind the baffling events that play havoc with the lives of the amazing men and women in this remarkable book. Tremendous in scope, breathtaking in its suspense, "Atlas shrugged" is Ayn Rand's magnum opus, which launched an ideology and a movement. With the publication of this work in 1957, Rand gained an instant following and became a phenomenon. "Atlas shrugged" emerged as a premier moral apologia for Capitalism, a defense that had an electrifying effect on millions of readers (and now listeners) who have never heard Capitalism defended in other than technical terms

Anthem by Ayn Rand ( Book )
158 editions published between 1938 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 7,378 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Equality 7-2521 lives in the Dark Ages of the future, where all decisions are made by committee, all people live in collectives, all traces of individualism have been wiped out. But the spark of individual thought and freedom still burns in Equality 7-2521, a passion which he has been taught to call sinful. In a purely egalitarian world, he dares to stand forth from the herd -- to think and choose for himself, to discover electricity, and to love the woman of his choice. Now he has been marked for death for committing the ultimate sin: in a world where the great "we" reign supreme, he has rediscovered the lost and holy word "I". This provocative book is an anthem sung in praise of man's ego

49 editions published between 1961 and 2007 in English and French and held by 1,853 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The fountainhead by Ayn Rand ( Recording )
36 editions published between 1994 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 1,737 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Fountainhead is an unprecedented phenomenon in modern literature. Arguably the century's most challenging novel of ideas, The Fountainhead is the story of a gifted young architect, his violent battle with conventional standards, and his explosive love affair with the beautiful woman who struggles to defeat him. In his fight for success, he first discovers, then rejects, the seductive power of fame and money, finding that in the end, creative genius must triumph. His battle against mediocrity gives a gripping new dimension to the concept of evil. The Fountainhead is at once dramatic, poetic, and demanding. A statement of principles for its author, the novel champions the cause of individualism and remains one of the towering books on the contemporary intellectual scene
Capitalism, the unknown ideal by Ayn Rand ( Book )
43 editions published between 1962 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,678 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The foundations of capitalism are being battered by a flood of altruism, which is the cause of the modern world's 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 default of conservatism, 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. -- Back cover

Philosophy, who needs it by Ayn Rand ( Book )
15 editions published between 1982 and 2005 in English and held by 1,290 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In these essays, Ayn Rand reveals the hidden philosophic premises at work in the human soul. Her powerful mind ranges to every corner of the culture; her brilliant pen writes with the dispassionate clarity and passionate eloquence that are her literary trademarks. The book's theme is expressed in the title essay, originally given as an address to a graduating class at West Point. To the question: "Who needs philosophy?" Miss Rand answere: "Everyone." "A philosophic system," she writes, "is and intefrated view of existence. As a human being, you have no choice about the fact that you need philosophy. Your only choice is whether you define your philosophy by conscious, rational, disciplined process of thought...or let your subconscious accumulate a junk heap of unwarranted conclusions........" Philosophy, according to Ayn Rand, is the fundamental factor in human life; consciously or subconsciously, it is the basic factor that shapes the character of men, and the culture and destiny of nations. It shapes them for good or for evil, depending on the kind of philosophy they accept. Our choice, Miss Rand holds, is this : a philosophy of reason, rational selfishness, and laissez-faire capitalism--or a philosophy of irrationalism, altruism, and collectivism. Today's world, she believes, is being destroyed by these latter ideas. The philosophy of reason she offers as the alternative is called Objectivism

The fountainhead by Turner Home Entertainment (Firm) ( Visual )
19 editions published between 1948 and 2009 in English and held by 941 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This film focuses on a four-cornered conflict of egoism between architect Roark (inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright), a newspaper magnate, his daughter and an opposed, socialistically inclined architecture critic. Vidor's celebration of an ordinary man as one of The Crowd and New Deal collectivism in Our Daily Bread, here gives way to Rand's philosophy of implacable egoism. The combination of Rand's one-dimensionally didactic dialogue, Vidor's engagement with the theme of the spirituality of creativity, his proclivity for soaring love-hate sexuality and an architectural vision in the design, make this a deliriously extreme celebration of individualism in American cinema

He lived in the dark ages of the future. In a loveless world he dared to love the woman of his choice.
