Rand’s chronicle crediting Aristotle with the rise of Western civilization and calling for the present generation of intellectuals to prevent civil destruction by continuing to value and promote abstract ideas and individuality. “In response to the practical problems of the 1960s many public figures were calling for a retreat from intellectual concerns in favor of blind tradition or range-of-the-moment pragmatism. Ayn Rand rejected this approach. For the New Intellectual is Rand’s manifesto on the fundamental producers and their enemies in Western civilization, the philosophical ideas responsible for this conflict, and the philosophy necessary to lead Western civilization to new heights” (Ayn Rand Lexicon) Collector’s Item.
