Happy 87th Birthday to Philosopher Leonard Peikoff

  • Ayn Rand

Happy 87th Birthday to Leonard Peikoff — author of Objectivism: The Philosophy of Ayn Rand.

Said Ayn Rand of the lectures Dr. Peikoff gave on which this book (OPAR) is based:

“Until or unless I write a comprehensive treatise on my philosophy, Dr. Peikoff’s course is the only authorized presentation of the entire theoretical structure of Objectivism, i.e., the only one that I know of my own knowledge to be fully accurate.”

But, to one man we owe so much.



Over the course of decades, Leonard Peikoff has been an invaluable guide to the philosophy of Objectivism—for anyone from a student beginner to an established intellectual. His lectures, talks, books and essays model rational thinking and objective communication, and his profound insights span across multiple fields—philosophy, history, education, psychology, physics, and more. In this [online event by the Ayn Rand Center UK,] to ‘toast’ to Dr. Peikoff and discuss his impact on their lives, are:
