THE AYN RAND LEXICON: OBJECTIVISM FROM A TO Z is a medley of topically-labeled quotations from Ayn Rand's various writings. Its format resembles similar "lexica" published in respect of Plato (PLATO DICTIONARY, Philosophical Library, 1963), Aristotle (ARISTOTLE DICTIONARY, Philosophical Library, 1962), and Bertrand Russell (BERTRAND RUSSELL: DICTIONARY OF MIND, MATTER AND MORALS, Citadel Press, 1952). Anyone wishing to sample Rand's thinking about a particular topic will find the book fairly useful. Entries usually include passages extensive enough to provide a reasonable idea of the context within which Rand discusses the matter at hand.

Ayn Rand has been a polarizing figure. Cultish admirers, who style themselves "Objectivists," immediately adopt her views on any topic and reflexively parrot them as their own, often reproducing their idol's pronouncements verbatim from memory. Otherwise uninitiated survivors of conversation with these individuals will find in THE AYN RAND LEXICON original sources for much of the Objectivist pablum inflicted on them.

The LEXICON's entries leave mixed impressions. Rand's positions on some issues are eminently reasonable, her observations astute, and her arguments incisive. Sampling them as edited snippets in the LEXICON, one can occasionally understand her writings' appeal to a would-be rational readership. Really, though, there's no joy in Mudville. When the editors let Rand take the bit in her teeth, she often expostulates in ways that reveal a much less attractive figure: a dogmatic, intolerant megalomaniac (she several times declared herself the greatest living thinker and the best living writer), the prototype of her Objectivist followers.

Possessing not one scintilla of Rand's own limited intellect, Objectivists will be at a disadvantage owing to the LEXICON's most conspicuous omission, an entry for the indispensable term "Randyness". Yes, Randyness: the persistent delusion that one isn't nearly as stupid as one actually is; characterized by a proclivity for incontinent messianic pronouncements accompanied by a total disregard of any factor that might inhibit one's own grandiosity; a syndrome typified by Ayn Rand and her knee-jerk acolytes for which there is no known cure and for which the only treatment of demonstrated effectiveness is derisive marginalization in all theaters of life, public and private.

This book is a gem. Ayn Rand was an original powerful thinker and writer, but her ideas on any given topic are scattered throughout her many books. The Ayn Rand Lexicon brings logical order and quick access to all her ideas. I've used it for years and will continue to turn to it for research and enlightenment. This book is more valuable today than ever, as Ayn Rand is so often misrepresented. An enormously useful reference that belongs on the shelf of anyone interested in ideas or curious about Ayn Rand.

Ayn Rand has produced the most valuable guide to a rational Philosophy to date. An extremely series of questions, that are superbly welll answered is " What did Ayn Rand say about....?" All important topics are listed and orderly quoted here. This is a must for all interested in studying Objectivism, which is a must for all rational individuals... No less.

As an ardent admirer of the purity and simplicity of Ayn Rand's philosophy, I found this book an excellent resource of the broad spectrum of her valuable insights. Collecting each subject topic into succinct selections from her many works presents an efficient means of quickly grasping her Collectivist definitions and ideals. This book has a greater value than its monetary cost.
