Ayn Rand, by Tibor Machan [Book Review]

Journal of Libertarian Studies 20 (2):95-101 (2006)

Robert Bass

Tibor Machan's _Ayn Rand_ aims to provide an introduction to Ayn Rand’s thought for “a broader readership who may have heard of Rand but not examined her ideas in detail”. . . . He portrays himself as an admirer, but not as a true believer who supposes that Rand can think no wrong. In addition to sympathetically discussing her views, he tries also to respectfully assess criticisms of those views. His position is not one of unqualified endorsement, but rather one of respect and high regard for Rand as a philosopher.
