Book Description Penguin Putnam Inc, United States, 2011. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Revised, Expanded ed.. Language: English . Brand New Book. Many businessmen hold the view that philosophy deals with meaningless abstractions that have nothing to do with practical life. But at a time when the world is facing a serious economic crisis and big business is taking the bulk of the blame, businessmen need to understand the philosophical answers to the ideological attacks against them. This collection of essays by Ayn Rand and other Objectivist intellectuals sheds light on the reasons why philosophy is not an ivory tower of escape but a practical necessity at all levels of business, influencing everything from day-to-day decisions to the broadest issues of politics and economics. These works address the philosophical ideas underlying the attacks against businessmen, and offers intellectual ammunition to those businessmen ready to defend themselves.
