Synopsis

Published in 1957, "Atlas Shrugged" was Ayn Rand's greatest achievement and last work of fiction. In this novel, she dramatizes her unique philosophy through an intellectual mystery story that integrates ethics, metaphysics, epistemology, politics, economics, and sex. Set in a near-future U.S.A. whose economy is collapsing as a result of the mysterious disappearance of leading innovators and industrialists, this novel presents an astounding panorama of human life - from the productive genius who becomes a worthless playboy to the great steel industrialist who does not know that he is working for his own destruction to the philosopher who becomes a pirate to the woman who runs a transcontinental railroad to the lowest track worker in her train tunnels. Peopled by larger-than-life heroes and villains, charged with towering questions of good and evil, "Atlas Shrugged" is a philosophical revolution told in the form of an action thriller. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch .

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Ayn Rand's first novel, We the Living, was published in 1936. With the publication of The Fountainhead in 1943, she achieved spectacular and enduring success. Through her novels and nonfiction writings, which express her unique philosophy, Objectivism, Rand maintains a lasting influence on popular thought. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch .

Format: Taschenbuch
Ayn Rand's magnum opus is definitely worth a read. A word of warning: this is not a typical novel. Be prepared for a world-view that you have not seen anywhere else. As you can see from the reviews below, Ms. Rand is loved--and hated--by many. My advice to anyone about to dive into her works: read it critically, but with an open mind. Let yourself be drawn into her fictional universe and exalt in the struggles and triumphs of her characters. Do not, however, assume that because Ayn Rand said it, it must be true. Do not let yourself enter the personality cult that has been constructed around her by Peikoff & Co. Above all keep in mind--despite what she and her cult followers say--her philosophy is merely an outline with many incomplete technical areas. That does not mean what she has to say isn't worthwhile--it IS!--but that you will need to work at it to integrate the good things that Rand has to say with your own practical experience. What's the book about? Well, to boil it all down (and not give too much away) it begins as the story of a woman who runs a railroad company, struggling to keep her company prosperous in a dark and uncertain time. There is much, much more to the book than this...but this is how it begins. I only give the book four stars because it was quite long and, frankly, at times it was plodding. Overall though, it is an excellent novel with a revolutionary message. I think everyone ought to give it a read at least once in their lives!

15 von 16 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Henning Gloege am 9. November 2003
Format: Taschenbuch
In an opinion poll of the US Library of Congress this was found out to be the second most influential book of history in the US, after the Bible.
I am currently in Buenos Aires, and here in Argentina it is only this year that an uncensored version of this book is published for the first time, and this almost 50 years after its first publication in the US. That should tell you something about its controversial nature.
As for the story, I am sure that the many other critiques of this book have given you a rough idea about it. Personally, I have always found many of the issues and speeches in the book to be somewhat redundant, and the fervor with which the Objectivists defend the book to be just a tad hysterical. To criticize the book or the author is akin to blasphemy in the eyes of many Randroids.
The problem in my view has always been that, as Rand herself once said, this is more of a philosophical exposee than a literary novel, and that shows quite often. As far as literary works go, the author's previous novel 'The Fountainhead' is far superior. The philosophy is the same, but the author concentrated on the story first, instead of worrying solely about how to propagate her philosophy.
Regardless of whether or not you agree with Mrs. Rand's views, this book is too important to simply ignore. It would be like ignoring the Communist Manifesto, just because you are an anti-communist, or the Bible because you are an atheist. For all collectivists: 'Know Thy Enemy', and for all individualists: 'Get it' if for no other reason than its importance for the individualist and libertarian movement. Individualism has too few advocates as it is, and this book has quite possibly laid the foundations of a rivival of the old liberal tradition in the decades after its first publication.

5 von 5 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von mike parker am 1. März 2000
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
It is generally acknowledged that Atlas Shrugged is more of an application of her Objectivism in a story format than a traditonal novel. This is a good thing, since as a novel, this book falls short. The characters are very two-dimensional and the plot was badly structured. I'm not opposed to a lengthy book, but Atlas Shrugged is too long, longer than it needed to be. The dialogue, the plot twists and the ideas are all repeated over and over again, beating the reader over the head with a message that, in essence, is quite simple. Even the characters are repetive, it quickly becomes difficult to discern differences between any of the "good guys". Midas Mulligan, Ellis Wyatt, Ken Danagger, Francisco D'Anacondia, Hank Rearden and even John Galt all seem so similar, one wonders why Rand even bothered coming up with different names for what is essentially the same character. The "bad guys" are even less inspired: Kip Chalmers, Wesley Mouch, Tinky Holloway, Jim Taggart, Dr. Ferris... after the first ten chapters, one is inclined not even to bother learning any of their names.
But the redeeming quality of this book is the excellent job it does of making the reader think. I've not yet read a book that brought me to a level of introspection as deep as this one did. And while I don't agree with some of Rand's views, most of the ideas presented seemed very true, or atleast, upon examination, lead to a realization of truths. And even though Ayn Rand's philosophical rants become repetetious, every diatribe, whether delivered by Galt, D'Anacondia or Haley, leaves the reader with some new insight and forces him or her to examine all the ramifications of Objectivism.

4 von 4 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Ein Kunde am 13. Mai 1997
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Atlas Shrugged, published in 1957, is known as Ayn Rand's magnum opus, and the
reasons for this honor are easily found within the pages of the book. The novel challenges
thousands of years of altruism and collectivism in human civilization. Atlas Shrugged is
Ayn Rand's tribute to the men of the mind: scientists, philosophers, businessmen, artists,
teachers. The novel unites metaphysics, ethics, economics and romantic love. The integration of theme, plot, characterization and style are unparalleled by any other philosophi-
cal work of the century. These elements, combined with the novel's scope and depth, lead
the reader into Ayn Rand's world, where he discovers and enters the lost Atlantis, a world
of moral giants.
Stated briefly, the theme of Atlas Shrugged is the role of the mind in man's existence. In the one thousand-plus pages of the novel, Ayn Rand sets forth all of values upon
which her philosophy, Objectivism, is based. In "About the Author," Rand tells the
reader: "My philosophy, in essence, is the concept of man as a heroic being, with his own
happiness as the moral purpose of his life, with productive achievement as his noblest
activity, and reason as his only absolute." Near the beginning of his radio address to the
world, John Galt tells his audience: "You have sacrificed justice to mercy. You have
sacrificed independence to unity. You have sacrificed reason to faith. You have sacrificed
wealth to need. You have sacrificed self-esteem to self-denial. You have sacrificed hap-
piness to duty." For each virtue of Rand's philosophy which the world has given up, Galt
presents a vice which the world has turned to.
