Ayn Rand and the “New Intellectual”

By Ayn Rand

In this interview, which took place upon publication of For the New Intellectual, Ayn Rand discusses: the nature of cultural leadership; the influence of Plato, Aquinas and Kant; the creeping mysticism infecting science; and the lengthy process by which individuals become the “new intellectuals” of tomorrow.

Presented through the generosity of the Estate of Ayn Rand.
