Apollo and Dionysus

By Ayn Rand

A concretization of the issue of reason vs. emotion via an analysis of two contrasting events of 1969: the glorious achievement of the Apollo 11 moon flight and the mindless mud-wallowing of the Woodstock rock festival.

The Q-&-A topics include: the irrationality of the Vietnam War— of the students protesting against it; and why Ayn Rand devoted time to social commentary.
