Penguin Random House is going to release Ayn Rand’s unpublished work from 1934. And Rand’s heir, Dr. Leonard Peikoff, even discussed the book at the 2014 Objectivist Summer Conference.
Of course, The Ayn Rand Institute is excited about the announcement. In their Press Release they say that Ideal, written in 1934, is scheduled for release and will be paired with Rand’s play of the same name. It will be available as a single volume with an introduction written by Rand’s designated heir, Leonard Peikoff.
“We are delighted to share this wonderful news,” said ARI executive director Yaron Brook. “How often does one get to announce the new publication of a novel by such an influential author eighty years after the book was written? It’s incredible to see that several decades after Rand’s death, her work and ideas are still fresh and alive in the culture.”
The Ayn Rand Institute’s Objectivist Summer Conference 2014 featured a Q&A event on Ideal. Dr. Leonard Peikoff, in a rare public appearance, fielded questions about the book, its ideas and the history of this important new publication.
